“Unspoilt ancient hilltop temple of Coimbatore.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2012

Good drive uphill and very peaceful temple. Good walking path also. View of Coimbatore city breathtaking. Ancient temple updated for today's crowds. Good trekking paths from the temple. Lord Muruga is the main diety there with lord Ganesha. Very effective temple and very popular among the local population and visitors.

“Maruthamalai brought to limelight by Sando Chinnappa Thevar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2012

Marudamalai is a small hillock with a small temple for Lord Muruga. This ancient temple was patronized and brought to limelight by Cinema Doyen and producer Sri Sando Chinnappa Thevar. . The road up the hill is narrow and quite easy to reach the summit. The temple is a very calm and peaceful. The mountains on the background give a very picturesque scene. Marudamalai has brought Coimbatore into the religious circuit for Lord Muruga.

“Lovely view of the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2012

A 12th century temple is situated on the hill. There are buses plying from Coimbatore bus stand to the temple. Or one can take a taxi up the hill. There are some steep steps to climb. But it is worth it. The pure air around the temple, the lush greeenery and the serene surroundings are soothing for the eyes and the soul.
