Azgar koil, Madurai.

  1. Thirumalirun cholai also known as Azagar Koil:

    This is One of 108 Divya Desam. The place is 21 kms from Madurai to north. The temple is within the fort. As we enter we see Karuppanna swamy who is kaval divam of this place.

    Main deity is Sundarajar or Kallazagar and Goddess Sridevi and Bhoodevi.
    urchavar is known as Goddess Sundaravalli.
    sthala vruksham is Sandalwood.
    Teertham: Noopura gangai and Silambu aru.

    Importance: Both main deity and urchavar are with panchayudam. The purana says Lord Yama penanced here to get rid of his curse and was blessed. As a gratitude he prayed to lord, permitting him to do pooja atleast once in a day. He was permitted to do, and they say, the midnight pooja is performed by Yamadarma raja.
