Vadapalani Murugan Temple History :

A sacred place of worship, Vadapalani Murugan Temple was established at a place where Lord Murugan’s devoted devotee, Annaswamy Naikar, revered him. He had wandered to places in search of Lord Murugan’s blessing and a cure for his long illness. A sage appeared in his dreams and guided him in his search for God in his own home.

Annaswamy went to worship Lord Muruga in one of the six houses of Lord Muruga in Palani. On returning home, he found an inspiring image of Lord Muruga that he brought back home and began offering prayers to God. He built a thatched roof as a shrine dedicated to Lord Muruga, who was later replaced by the striking structure that we can see today.

According to legends, Arul vakku of Annaswamy, which means that the powers of prediction and healing drew many faithful towards the sacred sanctuary. After the death of Annaswamy Naikar, Rathinaswamy Chettiar took charge of the religious place of worship. It is believed that the priest also had the power to dictate the words of the solutions.
