Recently visited Kumarakottam Subramanya Temple in Kañchipuram. This temple is dedicated to Lord Murugan, the Hindu war god. It’s also one of India’s 7 moksha-puris – the sacred cities.

In this temple in praise of Lord Murugan, the sacred Kanda Puranam was composed by the saint Kachiappa Sivachariyar. According to mythological references, Kachiappa would write his inspired account of the career of Lord Murugan or Skanda, and in the evening deposit his manuscript in the Kumara Kottam mulasthanam of Lord Murugan.

Each night, Lord Murugan himself would modify Kacciappa’s manuscript with his own corrections. Hence, the Kanda Puranam is considered to be the absolutely authoritative account of Lord Murugan’s career bearing the seal of approval of none other than the Lord Himself.

The Kumarakottam Temple is in-between Lord Ekambaranathar / Ekambereswarar Temple and Lord Kamakshi Amman Temple helps aficionados to remember the Somaskanda frame in which Muruga sits in the middle of Parvati and Parameswara.
