This is  one of the 6 padai veedu shrines of Murugan and is located in the outskits of Madurai. This is a very ancient shrine. Nakeerar’s Thirumurugatrupadai of the sangam period refers to this hill shrine. The Tevaram hymns of the 7th century sing of the glory of Shiva here.

25 hymns from Arunagirinathar's Thirupugazh and Kandapuranam and several other works speak of the glory of the shrine. The hill on the northern portion of which the temple is situated is known as Gandhamadanam Kandamalai and Paramkunram.

Thiruparamkunram is a shrine celebrating the marriage of Murugan with Deivayanai. This is a 2000 year old temple, still held in special regard by the city (residents) of Madurai and Tamilnadu. temple
