Madurai - Mangulam

Paraimadayanpatti is a hamlet of Mangulam. Parai means stone hill and madayan means bald, so the people here from the Valayar cast are living on this bald hill, on top of the hill the Hindu God is also called Paraimadayan, God of the bald hill.

At the horizont you see the hills of Alagar Kovil.

On the right you see the house where the younger son was murdered a year later ...
Even paradise knows its weal and woe !
