My third visit here.. each time gets better. Very peaceful place located in the edge of the hill. Best to visit during weekdays or non festive days. So relaxing and cool. The murugan deity there is a smiling one. He s very pleasant to look at . To the side of the temple there is plenty of place to walk... More

Apart from the fact that you get a clear view of Palani, nothing great about it. But since not too many tourists so temple visit was OK

I love this temple and have visited many times. It is very neat and tidy which is a huge plus for me. Flowers are sold outside in cute little baskets and they are very reasonably priced. The place itself is very peaceful and filled with good vibrations. Perfect for prayer or simply contemplation or introspection. Definitely recommend it!
