“A small temple on the mount!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

Nice little temple which satisfies the spiritual side of our holiday. The hill offers good views of Palani hills and beyond on sunny days.

“TEMPLE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

Less crowded during this time of the year. It rained a bit but manageable. I stayed back in the vehicle as both the kids were sleeping. we did not in the afternoon at around 2 pm. The best part is that the temple never closes during the afternoon. it is open right through the day.

“Great temple to visit. Very neat and clean. Must see in Kodaikanal.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

Visited the temple with family one evening. For any city dweller visiting Kodaikanal this temple is a must visit. Not due to any spiritual importance or anything. It is a very small temple in a calm and quiet ambience in a lovely place. Great temple. I felt like sitting there for a long time. All temples have to be kept this way.

Though your primary agenda can be unwinding and relaxing in Kodaikanal, spend a few minutes to visit the temple and pray to almighty Muruga without fail.
