Temples of Tamilnadu >>Togaimalai
Abodes of Skanda >>Togaimalai
Travel Base: Tiruchirappalli

The hill temple dedicated to Subramaniyar at Togaimalai is located near Manapparai near Tiruchirappalli. This is an ancient temple rich in legend and tradition.

Legend has it that Skanda appeared in the form of a screen of fire to protect a pious woman from the overtures of her husband's overlord, a military general - in the distant past.

This temple enshrines Subramaniyar while another temple closely associated with it nearby enshrines Meenakshi and Sundareswarar.

The annual festival here is celebrated in the month of Aippasi, the most important day of this festival being Skanda Sashti.
