The temple is dedicated to Lord Murugan who is also as Karthikeya, Subramaniya, Velava, Skanda, and Kumara. He is the Hindu God of war. Lord Murugan is the son of Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva, brother of Lord Ganesha and his concerts are Valli and Devasena. Devotees have to climb 365 steps to reach the temple. The temple is one of the six holy adobe of Lord Murugan. Temple is believed to build by the Pallava king during the 9th century- 10th century CE. Later the temple is renovated by the Chola kings.

Lord Muruga arrived here for peace after his victorious war with the demon Sura. The temple is unique, unlike other temples, Lord Murugan holds Vajra Hastam instead of his Vel in his right hand. In addition, Lord Muruga’s Vaahana is an elephant that looks east, in the place of the Peacock, which is the ideal Vahana of Lord Murugan.

On Tamil New Year, numerous Bhajana groups climb up the hill by singing the hymns of Tippugazh and lit camphor on each of the 365 steps of the hill that dedicate one for each day of the year.
Thaipusam is celebrated for 4 days, Panguni Utharam for 4 Days, Navarathiri for 10 days, Soorasamharam for 1 day and Karthigai Deepam for 1 day.

It is said that Sri Rama after killing the demon King Ravana, worshipped Lord Shiva at Rameshwaram and then came to Tiruttani to find perfect peace of mind. In Dwapara, Arjun got the blessings of Lord Murugan when he was on his way to Teertha yatra in the Southern part of India.Tiruttani Arulmigu Subramanya Swamy Temple View

Tiruttani Subramaniya Temple History

According to the legend, Lord Indra, the King of the gods presented his elephant Airavatam on the marriage of his daughter Deivayanai to Lord Muruga. Indra then realized that his wealth gradually started decreasing due to his Airavatam. Lord Subramanya offered to return the elephant. But Lord Indra refused to accept the gift that was returned. Instead, he suggested that the white elephant in front of the address is the Lord. Hence the idol of the elephant in this temple also faces the east. In addition, it is believed that Indra presented a sandal stone in his marriage. Sandal pasta made of this stone that has a strong medicinal value is applied to the Subramanya idol.
