A must visit place in kodai kanal. Around 5 kms from lake point, the abode of lord muruga is there. We can view kurinji flowers if we are lucky enough to blossom every 12 years. Next expected Kurinji blossom is 2018

This beautiful temple is locatted in kodaikanal, has murugan idol in it along the kurunji plant which is bloosom once every few years..the cool climate and clean temple makes it quite different from the rest in the country. When the view is clear one can see the palani temple hill sirectly from this temple.

The temple is small,simple and peaceful. The view of Palani temple is great. At dawn or dusk it must be magnificient as the Palani temple gets lighted.The handicraft showroom near by has a great collection that you can spend hours in the shop!

Had been there with my family and I liked the location of the temple and its vibration. You can find lots of shops just outside the temple where you can do shopping at reasonable price.
