Azhagar Kovil is just 20 km away from the Madurai city. You can feel the change of weather. This Azhagar Kovil is a Perumal temple @ Vainava Temple. After worshiping the lord kalazhagar and Padinettam Padi karuppasamy please go to Pazhamudhirsolai Sixth house of lord Muruga which is 4 km away from Alagar kovil which is a hill station. You can also take bath in Noobura Ganga.
Avvaiyar gave Naaval fruit to lord muruga.
If you visit to Madurai then please plan your trip to visit Alagar Kovil.

It was a temple dedicated to lord Perumal. Smaller than the huge temples in Madurai. It has flower stalls outside the temple and one can purchase them for their offerings. A little crowded over the weekends.

It was a wonderful temple few kms away from Madurai, I have visited this temple with family through city bus. Had a good dharshan in the temple. Was able to see lot of monkeys on the way, but none of the monkeys harmed us.

It was a nice Holy visit to this temple.

This temple is in honor of Lord Vishnu and is worth seeing while you are in Madurai. Just beware of the monkeys who tend to snatch the basked of sweet offerings from your hands. It is better if you just offer the monkey some food!! The monkeys here are revered and not harmed by temple attendants or visitors.
