It's one of the more famous South Indian temples around. Well connected and easily reachable by public transport including nearby Metro. Though I personally feel the management should work more on the maintenance, but you won't regret visiting here.

This is an iconic mandir for South Indians. Has so much culture preserved. Built atop a hill, have to climb a lot of stairs. Very scenic and you will breathe clean, fresh air.
