Muruganmala

Muruganmala, also known as Murugan Para, is situated 2 kilometres from Vagamon in Idukki.

Murugan Mala is a small hill on the eastern side of Kurisumala. Dedicated to Lord Murugan, the hill's summit bears a single rock. This temple, a prime example of Indian rock-cut temple architecture, draws pilgrims every year from all over India. The patron god of the temple is regarded as Lord Murugan, son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathy.

The moment you arrive at the top of Murugan Para, you are greeted by a cool breeze. The breathtaking beauty of the surroundings makes it one of Vagamon's most popular locations. Shimmery, fluffy clouds seem at arm’s distance here making it a picturesque location for nature lovers and photographers. October through April are the ideal months to visit this location. It is best avoided during the monsoons as the path is slippery and dangerous.
