I saw the Kurinji temple from outside. It is apparently the abode of the Neela kurinji that blooms once every 16 yrs or so. I saw the plant without any flowers. The temple maybe a go-to place for religious people. There wasnt anything there that excited me.

We visited this temple at 10.30 hrs on 06/02/2015. Even though it was a Friday, the temple had hardly any pilgrims. It was very peaceful when we prayed to Lord Kartikeya or Murugan and we got great solace. The Temple premises were under expansion hence strewn with building Material. The surroundings of the temple are maintained well. Since there was... More

We stopped at the temple while on a short tour.The atmosphere was very peaceful.The original temple is very small and beautifully carved.They are busy with expansion,but it is not causing any interference.

The original part of this temple is very small with fine carvings and an attractive Murugan deity.Extensions are in progress. When done the temple will be super colourful if the completed columns are anything to go by. The view beyond the souvenir stands is very fine.

This is one of the many view Points in Kodaikanal. What I liked more is the surrounding Shops. You can get good home decorating items at very cheap price, starting from Small ganesha, Diya, Boat, Saree or Gunmetal made Chandeliers . Dont Miss "Home Made Chocolates " which you get at Half Price ( 70 Rs for 250 Gms )... More
