The hill itself is Shiva Linga. This is a temple of great significance in South India. The very thought of this temple ensures total salvation to the soul. This is the place that would destroy the “I” arrogance. Mother Uma performed penance here going round the hill to claim the left part of Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva granted His darshan... More

Our hotel manager recommended this place to us and it was worth the drive. The temple is located on a hill and there are two other hills on each side of the temple. The view from there is excellent.

This is a very beautiful temple on a mountain peak. Still you don't see great reviews or information about this temple. The reason is the temple is open only on Full moon days. So if you drive on other days, you can't worship the god

This temple is situated in excellent location. In this location climate is very superb. Road is narrow and steep. Girivala pathai is very good.
