Thiruthani is one of the holy lands for the devotes of Lord Muruga as the village boasts of one of the six temples of the Hindu God. The village is located in Tamil Nadu in the district of Tiruvallur. The most famous attraction here is indeed the Sri Subrahmanyaswamy Temple and a number of devotes folk into the temple every year. For a lover of natural beauty, here awaits a small, yet beautiful river- Nandi River. Kumara Teertha also known as Saravana Poikai is a divine tank located in the small village and devotes believe that this holy water has therapeutic powers.
It is believed that Thiruthani is one of the six places where lord Muruga win a battle over evil forces. The other five holy shrines of Lord Muruga are Palani Dandayudhapani Swamy Temple, , Tiruchendur Senthil Andavar Temple, Tiruparamkundram Subramanya Swami Temple, Swamimalai Swaminatha Swami Temple and Palamudhircholai Subramanya Swamy Temple. It is believed that one need to offer prayers at all these temples to get the blessings of Lord Subrahmanya.

The climate here is humid and hot throughout the year. The best season to visit the place is during the winter which falls in the months of September to March.
