Murugan worship is seen as an ancient form of worship in Tamil land. Ganesha's place in this worship has not continued. The literature also does not give a record about Ganesha worship, so it can be seen that the relationship between Murugan and Ganesha was planned and established. But in the rise of devotional literature, Murugan and Ganesha have been brought to the stage of brotherhood. There is a problem between them because of a single fruit called mango. Murugan gets angry with his parents and goes to Palanimalai to stabilize his existence. According to Puranas, Surapaduman, who was standing as a tree after giving suffering to the gods, fell into two parts and turned one into a roofed peacock and the other into a roofed rooster. Muruga, who had lost the mango to Vinayaka, felled the mango tree itself, for felling Surapaduman who was standing as a mango tree. What is the reason for this? How has Murugan's mental discrimination reacted in this place? This article aims to identify and explain all this in detail.
