 The temple is located in Gobichettipalayam, a quiet town in the Erode district.  Gobi, as it 
 is shortly called, has two hill temples - Pachaimalai and Pavalamalai. This is considered 
 to be  a great reason to justify the town's ethics. Pachaimalai is also colloquially 
 pronounced as 'Pachamalai'.

 Arulmigu Balamurugan, the child god, son of Shiva Parvathi, the god of army, the teacher
 of all, finds his place in this scenic hill temple. The Lord appears in a very beautiful form
 and it is very difficult to take one's eye off.  
 The Poojai activities at Pachaimalai are renowned. The 'ArthaJama' poojai resembles the 
 one at Palani. Arulmigu Balamurugan takes the simplest form with white clothes sans his 
 ornamental jewels. This is the most peaceful scene, one can ever get in his life. 

 Though the temple is old, the structure has been built starting 1967. The most recent
  'Swarna Bandhana Kumbabishekam' was held in June 2006.
 Other deities residing in the temple are Vidya Ganapathi (form of common sense, quick
 wit and knowledge), Maragadha Venkatesa Perumal, Maragatheeswarar, Maragatha Valli, 
 Guru Dhakshinamurthy, Kalyana  Subramanyar, Anjaneyar, Navagraham and Kala
 Bhairavar. Urchava Murthys are Dhandayudhapani, Shanmugar, Subramanyar Pradhosha 
 Moorthy and Aiyappar. Golden Chariot and Golden Peacock mount have been donated by
 the public to the Almighty. A  wooden chariot runs around the hill during Panguni Uthiram 
 Chariot festival. 

 The temple is renowned for the 'Vaasthu' poojai where people bring the first brick to perform 
 poojai at the Sannidhanam. 'Ayyappa Maalai' in Karthigai month is also started here. 
 Couples who are in need of children perform their Sashti fasting here. It is a belief that the 
 couple in fasting at Pachaimalai would get a child. Anyone who is not married pray
 'Kalyana' Subramanyar and Guru Dakshinamurthy for their requests to be answered.
