Thiruparankundaram is 5km away from South Madurai. Lord Murugan shrine is located here. This is the Lord Murugan's first and important shrine among other temples. This is were Lord Muruga married to his first wife Thevanai (the daughter of Indiran), in the presence of Sun and Moon. Here is the only place we can see Lord Muruga with his first wife Goddess Thevanai, most (or all) other Shrines have Muruga with both his wives (Thevanai & Valli).
