Bhogar Samadhi, Palani

Home » Destinations » Palani » Attractions » Bhogar Samadhi

Bhogar Samadhi is located near the shrine of Lord Murugan on the south-western corridor. The temple got its name from Bhogar, a devotee of Palani Murugan, who is believed to have constructed the idol for the Murugan Temple. Local legend has it that he was a traditional practitioner of the Sidha medicinal system and has travelled to China to propagate the values of Sidha sciences.

Bhogar’s body also rests on the same spot and it is believed that Bhogar Samadhi has an underground passage connecting straight to the main deity of the Murugan Temple. The temple also houses the Maragatha Shivalinga and an idol of Arulmigu Bhuvaneswari Amman.
