Palamudircholai - Sri Subramanya Temple

Back to Arupadaiveedu Specials Home

Pazhamudir cholai or Pazhamudir Solai - which was earlier known as Solai malai, is a holy place near Madurai, in Tamilnadu - South India. It houses one of the most sacred temples of Lord Muruga - also known as Arumugan, Karthikeya, Skanda and Kumara - and is the sixth Aarupadai Veedu . Saint poet Nakkerar, in his songs in praise of Lord Senthil Andavar, places Pazhamudircholai in the sixth place amongst the six battle places ( Arupadaiveedu ) that Lord Muruga has fought to win over evil.

Legends - Puranas and Mythology

There is a famous legend associated with the temple - it is said that Avvaiyar, a famous tamil poet and a Muruga Bakthai(Muruga Devotee), came here when her knowledge was put to test by Lord Muruga, taking the form of a small boy. It is firmly believed that this episode took place at a tree near the temple and the tree is worshipped even today.
