Located in the old town area near a mosque and Ross Hill church. The three shrines are considered sacred by the locals as it is believed to protect the city from the sea storms. It offers a good panoramic view of the bay below.

Atop a good sized hill, one must climb to receive the priests' blessings. Lovely view of the canal and shipping zone, cargo, naval ships and huge coal shipping production. Temple was said to be 1000 years old, a nice place to stop.

Impressive enough from the outside. To go inside requires storage of cameras and mobile phones (which aren't allowed inside) and plenty of patience for the long queue to get inside. Probably best to go during the week to avoid the crowds.

Go there early in the morning and you will not feel like coming back!!! The temple, masjid and church were all on one single hill and later due to to the Port railway line, the single big hill was carved into 3 hills :-( The climb up the temple steps - stopping for the Vinayaka and AnjaneyaSwamy temples is well...
