Pazhamutircolai is located 19 km away from Madurai. The place is full of natural beauty and peaceful surroundings. Other names for this hill include Vrishabhadri or Idabagiri. Azhakar Kovil, one of the 108 divyadesams consecrated by Azhwars’ chants in the worship of Vishnu housed in this temple, is located at the base of the hill.

As the Lord of the Hills, known in Tamil as Kurinji Nilakkizhavan, Lord Muruga stands magnificently atop the hill in the temple. A motorable road that ascends the hill leads to the Pazhamutircolai shrine.
