PALANI

The posture is standing one with a stout stick in the right hand that is called Dandam and therefore the deity is called
Dandayudhapani (Dandam, plus Ayudham plus Pani-Dandayudhapani; meaning, ha, stick as weapon in his hand). At the neck there are Rudrakshas  in the form of a garland. Here Subrahmanya is a Sadhu
(ascetic), has renounced all worldly connections, To this deity abhishekam (ablution) is made from sunrise to sunset with different materials.

Darsan: 6 O'clock, morning-Viswarupa.

Six pujas: (1) Day's festival; (2) Kala Sandhi; (3) Sirkala Sandhi; (4) Uchikalam (mid-day); (5) Sayarakshai (evening); (6)
Rakkalam (mid-night or 10 P.M.)

The sculptor Siddha Bhoga, who made the idol out of the nine poisons, descended into the cave on his eternal journey and never came back again. People say that
he would come in due time again. This saint performed consecration of the deity as Sri Dandayudhapani in the central
shrine of the hill. His sanctum is now a small shrine in the corner of the south western corridor of the inner quadrangle on the hill.
