Swamimalai Temple

Sabarimala Temple

Thiruveragam (Swamimalai) is one of the six abodes (Fourth Padaiveedu) of Lord Muruga. Veragam is mentioned in the ancient Tamil literature Silappathikaram and Thirumurugattruppadai (13 lines). The lord is praised in Kandapuranam, Thiruppugazh and other literature.

The Lord is in the form of Wisdom (Jnana) and those worship him will be enlightened (get education and wisdom) by his grace. Being the embodiment of Pranavamantra, the meaning of Omkara (Pranava) was revealed by Lord Muruga to Lord Siva (Iswara) as per his request and hence the Moolavar (presiding Deity Murti) is name Swaminathaswami (Acharya of his own father). The Sthalapuranam is available in the temple office for more details..
