Thiruthani, a holy village where Lord Muruga rules, is one of the six abodes of Lord Muruga and is located in the District of Tiruvallur in Tamil Nadu State. The famous Subramanya Swami Kovil (temple) in Thiruthani attracts thousands of Hindu devotees to this abode.

The temple is perched on a hilltop approachable through 365 steps, representing each day of a year. A small holy river known as Nandi River flows through the town in its northern part. Kumara Teertha, also popular as Saravana Poikai, is a holy tank in Thiruthani. It is located at the foot of the hill housing the Subramanya Swami Kovil (temple). It is believed that the water in this tank has amazing curative powers. Thiruthani temple has a shrine dedicated to Lord Ganesha, also known as Abath Sahaya Vinayagar

Thiruthani is the home of one of the Arupadaiveedu temples, the six abodes of Lord Muruga or the six battle places where Lord Muruga won over the evils. The other five holy abodes are Palani Dandayudhapani Swamy Temple, Tiruparamkundram Subramanya Swami Temple, Tiruchendur Senthil Andavar Temple, Palamudhircholai Subramanya Swamy Temple and Swamimalai Swaminatha Swami Temple. Religious tour to all these six temples is believed to be very important to gain the blessings of Lord Muruga and exit from the sins in the life.

Santhana Venugopalapuram, earlier known as Nimbaka Kshethram, is a nearby attraction to Thiruthani. The temple enshrining Lord Santhana Venugopalan is the prime attraction in this place.
