1st Logo (March 22, 1974-February 23, 1979)[]

Sri Murugalaya (1974, Source - Pancha Thanthram)

Logo: On a black background, we see two models of the Maruthamalai Marudhachalamurthy Temple and the Hindu god Murugan with a peacock on her back standing on top of a table covered with flowers and two bowls and two oil lamps on both sides, all with a dark rectangular plate containing the company name in Malayalam. After a few seconds, six sunbeams fade in against the models.

FX/SFX: All live-action.

Music/Sounds: A catchy ascending sitar and tabla melody.

Availability: Seen on Panchathanthram, Mudramothiram, and Vellaayani Paramu.

Editor's Note: The darkness may get to some, but this is far from scary, because of the music, among other things like that.

2nd Logo (January 8, 1982-June 6, 1988)[]

Sree Murugalaya (1980, Source - Nagamadathu Thampuratti)

Logo: On a sunset landscape, there is a model of Murugan standing on top of a blue pedestal containing the company's name in Malayalam and in gray with the Maruthamalai Marudhachalamurthy Temple that has a spiky golden ring around it placed behind him on top of a blue-clothed table. In front of the said table is a lower-level table displaying two golden oil lamps and three sets of fruits.

FX/SFX: All live-action.

Music/Sounds: First, a five-note bombastic brass fanfare, and then a lyre melody with two lyre glissandos.

Availability: Seen on Nagamadathu Thampuratti, Jambulingam, Mahaabali, Makale Maappu Tharoo, Mulamoottil Adima, Aa Neram Alpa Dooram, and Rahasyam Paramarahasyam.
