“Divine experience at its best”
Reviewed 31 December 2016 via mobile

A Devine experience that can only be experienced and cannot be explained.
The beautiful small kamakshi Amman adorned a brilliant aquamarine blue (probably a blue diamond) that was visible from a distance made her even more beautiful.
It is believed that in this place, Amman stood on a needle head and prayed to lord Shiva.
One can buy an INR 50 special dharshan ticket to avoid long queues.
We hired our favourite, trusted, reliable and reasonably priced driver Mr Umapathy (Dhanush Travels 00 91 94442 86178 or +91 81486 81661) to reach this destination.
We also used this agent to go all around Tamilnadu this time and Kerala, Karnataka and Andrapradesh in the past. Booking well in advance is recommended.
