The stories of Devasena and Valli, wives of Lord Murugan, are steeped in myth and symbolism, chronicled in ancient texts like the Mahabharata and Tamil myths.

Devasena's union with Lord Murugan, gifted to him by Indra after his triumph over demons, follows the Vaidika tradition of marriage. Her divine lineage, as the daughter of Vishnu, adds to the sanctity of their bond.

In contrast, Valli's marriage to Lord Murugan, daughter of a tribal chieftain, unfolds in a more unconventional manner. Initially hesitant, Valli's acceptance of Lord Murugan's proposal comes after a series of divine interventions, symbolising the journey of the soul towards enlightenment.

These tales, rich in symbolism and tradition, continue to captivate believers and scholars alike, offering insights into the divine unions of Lord Murugan.
