Marudham Tree

Marudham tree A siddha, overcome by excessive tiredness and thirst, sought shelter under the shade of a Marudham tree and prayed for the mercy of Lord Muruga for a shower of water, which sprang at once, as though by a miracle from the tree. As water gushed out from the roots of the Marudham tree, the Siddha jumped in joy, glorifying Muruga as the Lord of Marudham and jalam (water). With the passage of time, Marudhajalapati became Marudhachalapati. http://murugan.org/temples/marudhamalai.htm
