NADU PALANI - SRI MARAGATHA DHANDAUTHAPANI

13, February 2012
நாடுங்கள் நடு பழனி நாதனை.    நல்லதே நடக்கும் 
On 12th Feb 2012, we had been to Nadupalani Sri Maragatha Dhandayuthapani hill temple and had the dharshan of  Sri Maragatha Dhandayuthapani. ( The deity is similar to the Sri Dhandayuthapani Temple at Palani ). The hill shrine ( 108 steps with one landing mandapam  at middle) was built by Sidhar Srilasri  Muthusamy and after his jeeva samathi, the temple is being managed by  Maragadha Thandayuthapani Thathathreya Trust. The hill temple is located  near Acharapakkam  on Chennai to Thindivanam route ( There is an arch before Acharapakkam Village 2 km   - There is also a Paadal Petra Shiva Sthalam at Acharapakkam 10 km away from this hill temple). It is a pleasant sight  of the hill sourroundings from the hill top during evening hours with cool breeze & clean air. At the base of the hill  Pillayar on the right side and Sri Rajarajeswari is on the left with a mahameru gopuram.  The   Sri Dhandayuthapani  deity is made of Maragatha stone of about 3 feet height. Sri Dhandayuthapani glitters during arathi. The Milk abisekams is being  performed only on Tuesdays and monthly Kiruthikai.

Lot of devotees are taking patha yathra with Kavadi from Chennai and various places on the occasion of Thai Poosam, Pankuni Uthiram & Iypasi Month. Rudraksha Kavadi is rare  performance in this temple. Tens and thousands of devotees throng in the hill temple on the above days. Annathanam is being fed on these occasions through the temple trust.  The important feature of this  temple is, Lord will remove the obstacles in the marriage, if devotees pray with whole  heartedly. Guru pooja of Srilasri Muthusamy siddhar  is celebrated on the previous day of Thirukarthikai, every year.
