Nothing more and nothing less....feeling truly blessed and truly happy. The walk to the sannidhanam is rejuvenating. Will try to go next time too.

He is son of Hariharan/Shiva. There are 2 ways to reach the temple, one takes half a day and the other one more than a day. This temple is pretty busy from November to January. Post which temple is open only 5 days in a month.

You are greeted by this when you enter the temple. Great!!! That can be interpreted in various ways. Once you reach there you feel compensated for the efforts undertaken to reach there.

It is an excellent temple with minimum restrictions and very well maintained. However, the environment management and crowd management during seasons needs serious relook. Even in the off season period when I was there, River Pamba was found extremely polluted and stinking. I could see small hillocks of discarded clothes in the River. More discipline has to be enforced in... More

Went with a gang of 16 including boys, old ladies and men. The trip was nice with regard to the team effort to reach the abode. The climate was hot and short persistent steps led everyone there. The rush is less in off season, the ecological impact also. If one could tolerate the hot climate then there is no better... More

Restriction for women between 10 & 50 ears of age. Climbing a 4 KM long hill track on foot is a must, even though manual help is available at a cost. please check... More
