Maruthamalai is the pride of Coimbatore; every citizen of Kovai feels proud that he belongs to a city where one of the most important temples of Lord Murugan is located. From this hilltop temple, it is as though Lord Murugan overlooks and protects the citizens of Kovai. The temple is built on the Maruthamalai hill at a height of 600 feet, 10 kms from Coimbatore. Murugan is worshipped as ‘Dandaayuthapaani’ (one who holds the weapon ‘Danda’) . Also on the hill are the cave and spring associated with Paambaatti Siddhar, a renowned mystic who is said to have performed several miracles and written extensively on herbal medicine. The popularity of this temple got a further boost when it was featured in many devotional Tamil movies! Murugan is the parihara for all Rahu doshas. This temple in addition is associated with Paambaatti Siddhar who was known for his friendship with snakes. Hence, this temple assumes great significance for all those who suffer from the ill effects of Rahu.
