Vattamalai Murugan temple

Vattamalai Murugan temple
Vattamalai Murugan temple is in Bhavani, Erode District, Tamil Nadu, State in India. Vattamalai Murugan temple is geographically located at latitude 11 ° 27′0'' and longitude 11 ° 27′0''. Vattamalai is a small hill, with a Hindu temple atop it. It is located at about 8 km from Kangayam.
This famous ancient temple dedicated to Muruga has the special distinction of being visited by the famous Saiva saint Arunagirinathar once. He eulogized the glory of the Lord and kshetram in fine sweet verses. This hill temple enshrines the beautiful images of Murugan flanked by Valli and Devasena. The temple was endowed liberally by wealthy bhaktas, and so vastness and majesty greets eyes in construction. The temple is facing west, and is a landmark visible for miles. Regular worship is offered with great religious fervour and the annual festivals are celebrated on a grand scale.

It lies between Palani and Gangeyam town, accessible by bus.

Many Indian movies have been shot at Vattamalai. Recently, the shooting of a Hindi movie Chennai Express starring Shah Rukh Khan made news as temple authorities refused to allow the crew to shoot inside the temple.
