Thirumoogoor

The temple for Kaalamega Perumal is situated in Thiru Mohoor at a distance of 13.5 km from Madurai. This Vaishnavite temple is a good example of the exemplary architectural skill of Tamil people. There are Sannidhis for Kaalamega Perumal and Mother Mohanavalli which are famous for their sculptural skill, workmanship on stone and for the Kodunkais. Also the Kambathadi Mandapam of this temple is a treasure house of sculptures. The pillars in which are carved the sculptures of Ram, Sita, Lakshman, Anjaneya, Manmatha, Rathi etc. are artful wealth. Facing the Sannidhi of this Mandapam the statues of Marudhu Brothers are seen in their full human heights beautifully.
