Arupadai Veedu Murugan temple
In 1984 the sage Kanchi Paramacharya was camping at Gulbarga in Karnataka State border when Dr. Alagappa Alagappan, an Ex-UN Official went to have his darshan. He mentioned to the acharya, "How about having one temple for all the six Padai Veedu temples of Lord Muruga at one place and that too in granite?"

Dr. Alagappan is the pioneer in building Hindu temples in USA. First he built Maha Vallabha Ganapati temple in New York and was instrumental in building many others like the Venkatachalapati temple in Pittsburgh and Meenakshi temple in Houston. He was advising and helping as well as organizing temple architects (stapathis) from India to build these temples.

The Temple Complex is on the shore of Bay of Bengal behind Ashtalakshmi Temple.
