This temple was constructed by King Kulothunga Chola II. The speciality of this temple is that Lord Subramaniar can be seen only with one Goddess at a time even though he is there along with both the Goddesses. If the God is viewed from one side he can be seen along with Goddess Valli and viewed from the other side, he can be seen along with Goddess Deivayanai. There are 84 steps to reach this hill temple

Subrahmanya_Swami_temple_Kundrathur

After conquering the demons in Tiruporur, Lord Muruga proceeded to Tiruthani in a happy mood. He installed a Shiva Linga and performed Shiva Puja on His way with deep meditation. This temple was later built by Kulothunga Chozha. Lord Shiva, worshipped by Muruga graces in the name of Kandleeswarar in a separate shrine. Lord Vishnu, Lord Dakshinamurthy and Mother Durga grace on the sanctum walls of Lord Muruga shrine. Lord Kasi Viswanatha, Mother Visalakshi, Lord Vinayaka, Bhairava, Navagrahas the nine planets and Nagar (serpent deities) shrines are in the prakara.

There are 84 steps to reach this hill temple. The design of the sanctum sanctorum is noteworthy. The devotee can see Lord alone if he/she is just in front of the shrine. If the devotee looks at the shrine either from the left or right of the shrine, he/she can have darshan of the Lord either with Mother Valli or Mother Deivanai. The Dwarapalakas (securities) at the entrance hold the weapons Vajram and trident.The abishek Vibhuti (sacred ash) is offered as Prasad.

During the eight day Skanda Sashti festival, the event of destroying demon Surapanma takes place on the sixth day while Valli wedding festival takes place on the seventh day and that with Deivanai is celebrated on the eight day. This is also the birth place of Sekkizhar, the author of Peria Puranam. There is a temple for the saint at the foot hills. As the place has a hill (Kundru in Tamil), it is named Kundrathur. Lord Valanchuzhi Vinayaka graces in a shrine on the hill route.Tamil Poet Sekkizhar was born here and his birthplace was made into a Temple. He was the chief minister of Kulothunga Chozha II alias Anabaya. He withdrew from the ministry and wrote Periapuranam.
