Arupadaiveedu - A Multimedia Ecstacy CD ROM begins with a brief introduction to the six sanctified temples of Lord Muruga. It then proceeds to present a virtual devotional journey of each temple, in the order provided by Thirumurugatrupadai.

As each temple unfolds itself in front of our eyes, we come to learn :

- the spiritual significance of the place and temple
- various names of the Lord who presides there
- the temple location and accessibility
- references to the temple, in ancient indian puranas and literature
- a brief history of the temple

After learning these essential details, the CD ROM takes us through each temple, covering :

- various Vimanams(temple towers) and Mandapams (pillared halls)
- different statues located along the temple and their spiritual significance
- all sub temples located within the temple premises
- approaches to the main Sanctum Sanctorium

After the temple visit, now it is time to witness some of the very special functions that take place inside the premises, on specific occations. We have painstakingly covered these festivals, in great detail :

- Thiruparamkundram : Soora Samharam, Chariot Festival and Laksha archana (worship to Lord Muruga by hundred thousand names)
- Thiruchendur : Swing Festival (Oonjal Sevai - where Lord Muruga swings with his consort in a highly tranquill atmosphere)
- Palani : The Golden Chariot Festival (A very famous occation in which golden image of the Lord goes around the temple in Gold Plated Chariot)
