Thiruchendra Temple

Thiruchendur Murugan temple is known as the second Arupadai Veedu of Lord Muruga. Lord Muruga won the battle with the asura, Surapadma and worshipped Lord Shiva in this sacred place. The temple is situated along the shores of the Bay of Bengal.

Normally, the Raja Gopuram will be in the eastern side of temples in Tamil Nadu. But in Thiruchendur alone the Raja Gopuram is in the western side. It is said that the Raja Gopuram was not erected on the eastern side since the sea is very close in the eastern side.

Mela Gopuram has nine storeys and it is about 137 feet high above Yalimattam, 90 feet long north to south and 65 feet broad east to west. At the top of the Gopuram the width is 20 feet and the length is 49 feet. To indicate that the Gopuram consists of 9 storeys there are nine Kalasams (sacred copper pots) at the top of the Gopuram.

About Guru Bhagavan – Jupiter

Guru Bhagavan – Planet Jupiter has been worshipped by the people since ages past. Offering prayers to planet Jupiter relieves the inauspicious impacts from the life of the spiritual aspirant. Students offer prayers to the Guru Bhagavan so that they might perform well in their studies. From beginning till end of the months festivals are celebrated in the temple like Maha Shivarathri in the month of February-March, followed by Tirukarthikai in November and December including Guru Bhagavan (Jupiter). In each week, Guru Transition day (Thursdays) is celebrated. The Lord Shiva is known as Swayambumurthy. It is said that the Lord Surya offers his prayers to Shiva Linga by his rays on 15, 16 and 17th in Avani Month (August to September). During Panguni (March-April), the rising Sun offers his prayers to Lord Shiva by dedicating his Sun rays on 25 and 26th of the month. The temple timings are 6.00 a.m. to 12.00 p.m. in morning and 4.00 p.m. to in the evening.

The Armour of Brihaspati – Jupiter

(Jupiter – Brihaspati is a great benefic, but it causes a lot of problems when it moves to some of the houses, especially first, third, fourth, sixth, eighth, tenth and twelfth from the Moon. It stays in each house for one year. This Kavacha should be read on all Thursdays during that period to get rid of the problems. Persons who have Jupiter in these houses should contact the undersigned below in order to participate in rituals and offerings designed to alleviate and remove such afflictions.)

And would gain victory everywhere.
