Once a famous Tamil Poet named Avaiyyar and a devotee of Murugan came down to Madurai as their knowledge was tested by Lord Murugan in the disguise of a small boy. The temple now situated in Madurai has a tree and the incident which took place according the legend also took place under the same tree. The tree is still worshipped as this is where the Lord Murugan appeared with his two consorts Valli and Devaiyani. The three of them have since been the symbols of action, want and knowledge. People till date come here to seek blessings of the Lord and the Goddesses who can bless them for marriage, babies and academics.
Now this place has some special place is my heart for the mere fact that it is the southernmost point of the Indian peninsula and had always read all it all throughout my life. We luckily got a train we took us directly to Kanyakumari else there is a place called Nagercoil which is the terminating station for most of the trains. The main part of this city is just 500 meters from the station and if just is light on your luggage you can just walk. As we didn’t want to miss the sunset we check in, freshened up and moved for a quick lunch.
