Tiruttani

Tiruttani temple, Thiruvallur district, Tamil Nadu Tiruttani temple, Thiruvallur district, Tamil NaduMeditation: I meditate on Sri Muruga marrying Valli at Tiruttani and leading a calm life.

Tiruttani: Tiruttani is one of the Arupadai Veedu temples of Muruga (one of the six holy abodes of Muruga).

Sri Muruga marrying Valli and leading a peaceful life: According to legend, Sri Muruga led a calm and peaceful life here after vanquishing demon Surapadman and also married Valli in this place. The incident of marriage with Valli is celebrated as a ten-day festival here during the Tamil month of Masi. The hill temple has 365 steps.

Shanti Puri: Tiruttani is known as Shanti Puri or the Abode of Peace since Sri Muruga led a calm and peaceful life here after vanquishing demon Surapadman. Since Muruga is in a peaceful mood here, the Sura Samharan festival is not celebrated in this temple during Skanda Shasthi unlike other temples of Muruga.

Elephant instead of peacock: The temple has an elephant in front of the sanctum in place of a peacock.

• Tiruttani is located in the Thiruvallur district of Tamil Nadu.
