City Location: Mohanur
The history of the temple is simply identical with that of the Sri Achala Deepeswarar Temple of this place, based on the Mango story that hurt Lord Muruga deciding to leave parents Lord Shiva and Mother Parvathi and Mount Kailash and the divine parents following Him. Lord Muruga stopped here when called by Mother addressing him ‘Mahane’ meaning, Oh! My son. Lord Muruga stopped for a while. Based on this history, a temple was built for Him.
There is a small hill outside the temple with a shrine for Idumban, holding a Kavadi facing south.
Thai Poosam in the month of January-February, Skanda Sashi in Aipasi (October-November), Karthikai in November-December and Panguni Uthiram in March-April are the festivals celebrated in the temple.
