Arulmigu Balamurugan Tirukkovil, Rathinagiri

Rathinagiri Bala Murugan Temple was built around 14th century. Over the passage of time an ordinary sand structure was converted into a stone shrine.

Lord Balamurugan manifests himself at Rathinagiri in 2 forms. First in the form of deity with his two consorts Valli and Teyvanai. Second is in the form of our Guru, Swami Balamurugan Adimai.

Ancient Hindu scriptures say that wherever there is a hill, Lord Murugan resides as the all-powerful Deity. Of these Tirupparamkundram, Tiruchendur, Tiruvavinankudi, Tiruveragam and Palamuthircholai are famous shrines, collectively called 'Kundruthoradal'. The holy shrine at Rathinagiri also features in this category.
