Kumarakottam Muruga Temple is situated in Kanchipuram, Tamil Nadu. The temple is also known as the Subramaniya Swāmi temple.

This temple is said to form a cluster with Ekāmbareswarar temple and the Kāmakshi Amman temple in Kanchipuram. The Murugan temple is located between the temples of his parents – Ekambareswarar Temple dedicated to Shiva and the Kamakshi Amman Temple dedicated to Kamakshi. Symbolically, this setting represents the iconography of Somaskandha, an aspect of Shiva where he is depicted with Murugan and Parvathi.

Significance of Kumarakottam Muruga Temple:

The temple legend in the Kandha Puranam – the Tamil version of the Skanda Purāna which is mainly devoted to Murugan also known as Skandha or Kandha or Subramanya, states that Murugan had imprisoned Lord  Brahma here for the latter's ignorance of Om, the Pranava mantra and himself assumed the role of the creator in this place. However, Lord Shiva had ordered him to release Brahma. When Murugan realized his mistake in not obeying his father’s instruction, he did penance before a Linga, which subsequently was worshipped by the name of Devasenapathisar, literally, the Lord who was worshipped by Devasenapathi (an epithet of Murugan as the commander-in-chief of the gods). It is also said that the penitent Brahma is said to have been released by Shiva after he worshipped Murugan after learning his lessons in humility
