These are litte spots every place has. No significant interest but part of day packages. Nothing much here just ancient value.

The best temple in Kodaikannal city next to Poombari Murugan Temple, which is around 20 kms apart from kodaikannal city.

Very nice location. It was fully covered in mist when we went there. Walking in the temple at bone freezing cold, bare foot, in the mist was a very memorable experience.

This is a small temple but made and done very well . Dedicated to Lord Murugan it has a nice idol for worship and a nearly done temple. Alongside is the view of the valley and inside the temple complex you can see the Kurinji tree. A must visit when you are in Kodaikanal

Could not see the kurinji flower. Now it will bloom in 2018. From the left side of the temple we can have a view of palani.

The value of this place is both spiritual and historic. Having an air of spirituality in a Hindu temple is to be expected. However what is additional is the history around the lady who made the temple. Try to read a little bit about the history before you go and also take time to look at the views around.
