  • Visiting vayalur murugan temple is one nice journey in trichy because this temple was located little outer of Trichy and the way completely filled with greenery view which mean on the both side of the road you can see the farm lands and trees. Especially bike journey felt awesome 👌 Temple also gives a positive vibe.✨️
  • Vayalur Murugan Temple is located 11 kms from Trichy. The Temple is built Cholas during the 9th century. The presiding deity is Shiva on the form of Aadinayhar and his consort Aadinayagi. The five tired Rajagopuram is a modern addition. Arunagirinathar, a noted Tamil poet, visited Vayalur and sung 18 songs praising about Murugan in Thirupugal. The practice of adopting children with dosha is followed here. This is a peaceful Temple. We can find green paddy fields on both the sides on the way to Vayalur. We can have positive vibrations here. There is a separate sannithi fot Thiru Muruga Kirubanandha Variyar, who praises Vayalur Murugan in all his discourses. He is very much instrumental in constructing the Rajagopuram.
