Subramanian Kallidaikurichi is a Vinayaka temple originally where Murugan became prominent over time. A large Mantapam is in front of the temple in the middle of the road. A large stone gateway with cloistered Mantapas on both sides leads into the large outer Prakaram. The Prakaram has cloistered Mantapas on all three sides and has many trees. The inner Prakaram has all the shrines and is covered on top like most temples in the region. A Mantapa in front has the Balipeedam, Flagstaff, and the mount of Vinayaka, the mouse. This leads into the Maha Mantapam where Lord Vinayaka graces in his sanctum sanctorum. On another side is the shrine of Lord Muruga as Subramania with his mount, the peacock in front. The pillars in the Mantapas here at Subramanian Kallidaikurichi are all large and beautifully carved. The Nataraja idol here is made of stone.
