Recently visited the famous Sri Rana Bali Murugan Temple in Peruvayal, near Devipattinam at Ramanathapuram district. The temple is very famous for it’s unique feature that Lord Murugan lies inside his weapon Vel.  The temple is currently under the control of Ramanathapuram palace.

In this Lord Murugan temple, the murugan idol is called the “Satru Samhaaram Vel” of the Lord Rana Bali Murugan Temple. The Ramanathapuram King Kizhavan Sethupathi had a warrior called Chattappan. He is a great devotee of Lord Murugan and used to go to famous Murugan temple Thiruchendur  to workship Lord Murugan. One day Lord Murugan, appeared in his dream and told him that “at the top of the Devipattinam Navapashanam, there will be a garland and lemon fruit will float in the sea, I will be with my goddess in the form of Satru Samhaaram Vel.” Asked him to take and worship in his city. Ramanathapuram King Keelavan Sethupathi, who heard about this incident, offered land and funds to build this temple of Lord Murugan.

Today devotees can see this idol of the Lord Murugan in the Vel during the famous festival Sura Samhaaram. It is strongly believed that the worshipers of this Lord Murugan on this Vel will have blessings and privileges to conquer their enemies.
