“Velliyangiri hill temple”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

We visited Velliyangiri temple some 27 km from coimbatore. could only see the ground level temple.it was very calm and quiet. we were not allowed to climb to the hill temple. only girl child below 10 years and older women are allowed. I was surprised that this ritual which resembles the Sabarimala in kerala is followed in a shiva temple. was very disappointed. was compensated by the ground temples serenity and the very different navagraha near the saraswathi temple, which is a flight of about 20 steps . the 9 navagrahas are placed in a circular position on top of a big lotus structure with the symbols of each navagraha beneath each.

“Full Moon Walk”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

A rare visit to this hill temple on Chitra Pournami .It's experience in life time.I walked with my office collegue along with 1.5 lac public on this special day.The herbal tea in sixth hillock is boon to our system.Very risky and different trekking experience on this day gives a total energy with medicinal value.The hill with white sand so called vibuthi hill makes feeling that divine force is with us.
