Swaminatha temple at Swamimalai is located 8 km west of Kumbakonam, Tamilnadu.
The temple is ancient. The current structure is built during early 10th century CE by Cholas.
Perched on top of a hillock, the temple is one of the six abodes (Aarupadaiveedu) of Muruga.
Swamimalai is where Muruga as a child preached ‘Pranava mantra’ to his own father, Shiva.
