History of the Palani Temple

As the mythological story goes, one day Sage Narada came to mountain Kailash to offer the fruit Gnana-Palam (literally, the fruit of knowledge). Lord Shiva was confused about which of his two sons he gave the fruit of knowledge. He decided to give the fruit to the Son who first encircled the earth thrice.

Accepting the challenge Lord Murugan(Karthikeya) started his journey around the world on his vehicle peacock. Ganesha believes that his world is his parents. He took the 3 rounds of his Parents and won the fruit.

Getting furious about the decision, Murugan felt he needed to get mature and decided to go to Palani Hill and stay there only.

One of the 18 great Hindu shriddhaars sage Bogar built the idol of the lord on the top of the hill. The idol of the Lord is believed to be built of nine poisonous substance which forms eternal medicine when mixed with a certain ratio.
