Lord Muruga resides in two forms in this temple, Thirukkolam (with his wives Valli and Deivanai) and the Gurukkolam. The other deities are Lord Ganesa, Lord sani and the Navagrahas. Lord Muruga's Thirukkolam is very special and attracts devotees from all over the world. In the beginning the temple was raised using sand and stones. Through the years the temple was renovated and was fully developed by 1980. The fully developed temple has a huge temple tower, mandapam (rest houses), parks, tanks, hospitals and schools surrounding it.
