There are some Muneeswaran Temples located in Tamil Nadu. Among those temples, this BalaMuneeswarar Temple is very famous, since the great Lord Muneeswara grants child to childless devotees.

Muneeswarar is considered as an incarnation of Lord Shiva, and he is considered as the guardian god. In this temple, devotees used to offer both vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian food items, in order to please the god.
During the last century, Lord Muneeswarar appeared in the form of a boy in the dream of a local villager, and asked him to build a temple for him at the present day Aranvoyal village. The next day morning, the villager informed about the sweet news to others. Immediately all of them were gathered, put their money and started building a small temple for Lord Muneeswarar. After some time, due to the efforts of the local devotees, the temple had been transformed into a medium sized temple. Since Lord Muneeswarar appeared in the form of a boy in the dream of the villager, they have named the temple as “SREE BALA MUNEESWARAR TEMPLE”.
