Every temple has its own story to be told. . .
According to the lore, when Lord Kartikey (son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati) lost the golden fruit to this brother Ganesha, He became furious and wanted to vent out his anger. Thereafter, he ran from Kailash Parvath (the abode of Lord Shiva) to this hilltop.
This calm and excellent temple located atop the Sivagiri hill is dedicated to Lord Kartikey who is also known as Murugan and Dandayathapani, this temple houses an idol made of medicinal herbs.
The architectural style of the temple bears consistent features of the era that dates back to the reign of Pandya rulers. Apart from weather, divinity and other stuff this place is excellent for photography. There are lot of flowers available at the temple. There is a view point next to the temple. A good place to see.
