Pazhamudir Solai
Temples of Tamilnadu >>Pazhamudir Solai
Abodes of Skanda >> Aarupadai Veedu >> Pazhamudir Solai


Significance: This is one of the six of the holiest of Murugan shrines refered to as the Aarupadai Veedugal.

Unlike the other five temples, there is no grand edifice surrounding the central shrine of worship. However, this is a holy shrine venerated by the Skanda puranam and by Nakkeerar’s Thirumurugatrupadai of the Sangam period. Arunagirinathar's  Thirupugazh also reveres this shrine.

This shrine is located on a hill adjacent to the Kallazhagar Temple in the outskirts of Madurai, a fortified temple complex, revered as one of the 108 abodes of Vishnu glorified by the hymns of the Alwars. Also near Madurai is another of the Aarupadai Veedu shrines, Tirupparamkunram.
