Located atop the hillock is a peaceful and serene temple which has witnessed the rise and fall of might empires of yesteryears. The typical Chola Architecture is seen with few recent modifications. The Divine presiding deity of Murugan /Karthikeya is beautiful and the premises clean.

The place is neat but there is no parking facilities. They are very rude, they didn't say archanai to God even u brought archanai ticket. There are so many parrot josiyam in steps. It will disturb a peace environment.
