  • A beautiful temple on top of a hill devoted to Lord Murugan. There is ample car parking space. It is pretty calm and quiet on or before 9am and then it gets pretty crowded really soon. There are a number of decent eateries and shops to buy knick knacks or local chocolates. A must place to visit.
  • One of the most famous temple in Kodeekanal. The temple and it's surrounding is neat and clean and well maintained. From the top of the hill you can view the whole town of kodeekanal. Lot of gift items, chocolate can be purchased from the shops near to temple. Car parking space is very less. Very those who are visiting kodeekanal must visit this temple. What ever you wish to happen in your life then come and pray here it will surly comes to you soon.
