To the south of Madurai at a destance of about 7 miles is the celebrated cave temple dedicated to Sri Murga. It is here he was married to Indraís kaughter Deivayanai after his victory over Surapadman.
The temple is on the northern side of a hill. The gopuram is 150 fetet high and inside the temple is the Kalyana Mandapam with a number of statues. The sanctum is carved out of a rock and the Lordís wedding with Deivayanai is depicted here. No abishekam is conducted in the sanctum expect to the Vel. Beside the well-chiselled form of Muruga ,there can be seen the images of Karpaga Vinayaka,Satyafirinathat, Kurga and Vishnu.
At the top of the holl, there is a shrine dedicated to Kasi Viswanathar. The image of Nadeerar, the Tamil poet, is seen here standing with reverence.
Tirupparandunram is one of the Arupadai Veede of Lord Muruga.
