This temple is over 2000 years old, the large temple is in granite with a nine-tiered gopuram and the only Muruga temple in which you descend a few steps to get to the main praharam and sanctum. Enter through the Shanmugavilasa mandapam, and admire the 124 carved pillars here. There is a hole in the wall opposite the flagstaff where, if you place your ear to it, you can hear the unceasing sound of Om, or perhaps the echoing sound of the waves.
