Thiruparankundram History





Inscriptional confirmations call attention to that this temple, being cut out of a slope, was most presumably prior a Jain cavern. There is another hypothesis that prior to this, the Murugan temple existed much before the sixth century and changed over into Jain love focus by Jain priests under the aegis of Pandya ruler Koon pandiyan. The temple was later changed over into a Hindu temple under the instruction of Gajapathy, the priest of a later Pandya King, amid the later piece of the eighth century. The temple has a few increments in the routine of Madurai Nayak who charged the pillared corridors in the temple. In present day times, the temple is kept up and regulated by the Hindu Religious and Endowment Board of the Government of Tamil Nadu.
