Temples And Legends Of Tamilnadu Introduction

Twelve miles to the northeast of Madurai is Azhagar Hills. This is a Vishnu temple dedicated to Soundararaja Perumal or Azhagar (the beautiful). The temple is situated amidst very picturesque surroundings. The temple faces east. The southern side is bounded by a hill running from east to west, 10 miles in length and 1000 feet in height. It is full of green vegetation.

That being the background of the temple, it gives a panoramic view. From the western side of the temple there is a passage leading to the beautiful garden with fragrant flowers, coconut trees, etc and the passage leads to the tank where many mendicants take shelter during mid-day. Beyond that, to a distance of about three miles mountain is very green and there are fountains. Water from these fountain flows very nears the temple precincts.
