  • It’s good tracking experience if you choose to walk or you can opt out car option too. Our hotel was nearby so we go by walking. When we reached Aarti was going on. Very nice place.

  • We visited this temple in evening, but temple was closed. This is located very near to city in calm and serene location. It is a must visit place if one wants the holy feel and peace of mind.

  • Lovely place, Peace of mind. Those who have time can go there by walking, Walk way is more pleasant and beautiful, one can enjoy the rose garden and local tea garden ariel view. Back side of the idol is a flat mountain ⛰ where the clouds touching and the view is amazing. You will require 1/2 day time for the visit by walking.
  • Could have been maintained well. didn't feel spiritual. just traditional temple with tall stunning Muruga statue. worth a visit. however no return medium of transports are available. we had taken auto and made him wait until we come back. on the other side of the temple is rose garden.
