It is a long climb to reach the top of the hill-fort, but the effort is rewarded with some spectacular views across the surrounding country-side. The temple architecture is interesting to view as well.

When I was there, I have used Ola cabs (indian uber). It is cheaper than auto. Autowalas asking too much especially if you can not speak tamil. I recommend Ola if you don't want to use public transport.
