History of Subramanya

The history of Kukke-Subramanya is firmly bound with the legends of the temple. According to mythology, Lord Subramanian, also known as Shanmukha, arrived here with his brother Lord Ganesha to vanquish the demon Tharaka and others. Following their victory, the Lord Indra gave his daughter’s hand in marriage to Lord Subramanian. The two were joined in holy matrimony in the presence of all the Gods - including the trio of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.

It is also believed that the great sage and devotee of Lord Shiva - the serpent king Vasuki, performed tapas or penance here for many years, to avoid attacks by the mythical Garuda. Impressed by his devotion, Lord Subramanian blessed the sage, and it is believed that he resides in spirit along with Vasuki in the shrine of the temple. Devotees believe that coming to the temple and paying homage to the Lord would keep them away from evil or naga dosha.
