The Ratnagiri Temple is dedicated to Lord Balamurugan. It is an ancient temple situated on top of a hill in Vellore. Balamurugan Adimaigal developed this hilltop temple and also founded a hospital and a school with the help of community involvement. It is locally speculated that the spiritual power inside the temple showers its blessings in three forms.
The deity of Lord Murugan in the first form of blessing, secondly in the incarnation of Guru Swami Balamurugan Adimai and the third form is that of the devotees. Thousands of devotees gather every day to seek Lord Murugan’s blessings. Devotees can come to the temple from 6 am to 1 pm and again from 4 pm to 8 pm.
The ritual of Abhishekam is done at 6 am, 10:30 am and 5:30 pm daily. If you want to meet the temple staff, you can visit the temple office from 9 am to 1 pm and 3 pm to 6 pm.
