Vazhividu Vidu Murugan Temple – ஸ்ரீ வழிவிடு முருகன் திருக்கோயில் is one of the famous Lord Murugan temple in Ramanathapuram. As Vazhividu Vidu Murugan solves problems of his devotees and guides away in their life, Hence the deity of this temple is called Vazhividu Vidu Murugan, which means “வழி விடு” which means “Path Guiding” in the Tamil Language.

One of the very special about this temple is Lord Murugan and Lord Ganesha are seen together from the same sanctum sanctorum, which is very rarely seen in other temples.

Lord Ganesha is usually on the left side as you enter the temple, and Lord Murugan is on the right. When you initially worship Ganesha and then return to the temple, there will be a method identical to worshipping Murugan.

Inside the Vazhividu Murugan temple, there is a tree called “Chaya” – Chayadevi, Mother of Saneeswarar. The people of the area worship this tree as an aspect of Chayadevi. So for those who come and worship at this place, by obeying the word of his mother, Lord Saturn – Saneeswarar is said to alleviate suffering.

We could find a similar tree at the Kataragama Murugan Temple in Sri Lanka.

History of Sri Vazhividu Murugan Temple / Sri Valividu Murugan Kovil in Ramanathapuram:

Many years ago in the location of the current temple, there was the Bodhi tree – The pipal tree. Just under this tree, a little Vel – weapon of Lord Muruga was planted and worshipped for quite a long time.

Since the Ramanathapuram court was nearby this temple, those who came for the trial would pray at this temple to win their cases. As this place established a life and a path for living, as a result, worshippers began to refer to this Murugan at this temple as Vazhividum Murugan (வழி விடு) – Muruga who shows the life path.
