Good place and it's worth to visit this place. Plan to have your own transport arrangement like call taxi or tourist vechicle.

Thiripparankudram Murugan temple is in town but a 20 minute ride from my hotel. I had received darshan when I visited this temple in 2002. The day had been a special festival and the pressure and smell of the bodies, the thick incense cloud, the heat, the laughing priests, one after another, all painting my forehead, had made that occasion...

This is a must visit for a spiritual traveller. It is ancient temple cut into the mountain. Very powerful, there are many small temples within, with rare idols of sages Patanjali, Ved Vyasa and Parasara. Photography is allowed upto a point and it is worth the ticket as there is a lot to photograph. There is also a gurukul school... More

I went with family on 14th Jan 2015 to have darsan of Sri Subramanya Swamy. Too much rush was there. We went through special darsan queue and we could see the Lord within 30 minutes.Really it was worth visiting because of its sacredness. It is one of the 6 padaivedus of Sri Subramanya in Tamilnadu. This is one of the... More

A good temple to visit. Not like Meenakshi temple, but we can visit the place. Very peaceful place. Duration you should devote there is around 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours.

One of the six abodes of Muruga, the most crowded and bussiest temple. Cleanliness is desired manifold. The place is holy and godly. In actual this was a Shiva temple at the time they had built this but in course of time this has been changed to Murugan temple by the successive management I suppose. It would be very difficult...

About 4.5 KMs of journey time to reach the hill top. The Q gets cleared with in no time, as soon I realize I am out of darshan it took only few minutes. If you take Rs.100 ticket you can perform archana and can get a free calendar of Lord Subrmanya swamy. This is one of the 6 house of... More
