Thirupporur Temple

The Kandaswmy temple at Thirupporur also known as Thirupporur Murugan Koil is an ancient temple tracing its origin to the Pallava period. The temple was renovated in the 18th century and later.

Though Thirupporur is only about 25 Kms from my place in Chennai, I could have darsan only recently. Fortunately, another occasion followed.

The temple is the abode of Lord Muruga and his consorts, Valli and Devanai.

The gopuram seen above is seven-storied and rises to a height of 70 feet.

Vaikashi Vishakam (May-June) is an important festival in this temple.
