History of the Temple  

(narrated by Senior Priest Sri K.S. Ganapathy Archagar in 2001 to the webmaster of Kaumaram.com)

About 120 years ago, construction of the road from Kuala Lumpur to Kuantan was in progress here. When a large tree was being chopped, it started to bleed. One of the Tamil workers went into a trance at the same time. He said that the tree should be spared and the road laid a short distance away. The British supervisor refused. To everybody's astonishment a figure of a child appeared on the trunk of the tree. The supervisor was surprised and changed his mind. The road was laid away from the tree. The place became sacred, and it took the name of Sri MarathANdava BAla DhandAyuthapANi (Lord Murugan). Several true devotees have experienced miracles here. They are bestowed with good fortunes in their lives. The lame had walked, the dumb has spoken and the chronic sick - healed. These miracles are still occurring!

I came here in 1955, at the age of 30. My salary was then 20 Ringgit. This temple was made up of zinc sheets and wooden planks. The usual miracle that occurred here then was, if any vehicle passes by this temple without stopping, it will stall a short distance later and will not restart until the VibUthi (Holy Ash) from the temple is applied on it!

Panguni Uthiram (March/April) is the grand festival here. In those days there used to be around 500 'archanai's. Now the number exceeds 300,000!

In 1962, I had a dream. In it I saw a Yogi (devoted to Lord Murugan), who lived here about 200 years ago. He was walking towards the tree after having his bath in the nearby stream. He vanished into the tree! Appearing again in my dream, he instructed me to serve this temple. Since then I decided to serve this temple for as long as I could.
