Author's Description:

Moolaver: Balasubrahmanyar, Swaminatha Swami

City Location: Kumaran Kunram, Chromepet

Temple History:
Long ago, there was only a hillock in this sacred place.  Once, Kanchi Periyavar who came to this place saw this hillock and said that in the later years, a Murugan temple will come into existence here.  After some time, when a few devotees tried to put in order this hillock, they found a ‘Vel’ – Spear in the hill.  They installed it in this place and started worshipping it.  Later on, a separate temple for Lord Muruga was built.  He was also named ‘Swaminathan’.

Festival:
Vaikasi Visaakam, Kanda sashti, Thai Poosam, Panguni Uthiram

Prayers and Poojas:
Devotees pray to this Lord to ward off the hurdles to get married and beget issues.  Since Lord Muruga faces the northern side, devotees offer Him sacred things to augment opulence in the family.  So, he is called “Aiswarya Murugan”.
Abhishekam is performed to Murugan, Lord Siva and Ambal and donned with new clothes. Devotees make an offering this way.

The temple is open from morning 6.30 to 11.00 and in the evening 4.30 to 8.30 pm.
