There was very little crowd at the temple and we got a chance to say some prayers. Two scenic views one of Palani hills in the distance and the other of Kodaiakanal city up close make it worth the 10 minutes drive from the lake. Nothing too great to write about, just a simple quiet temple which is worth visiting... More

Located amidst the breath taking view of Palani hills, this temple is famous for its Kurinji flower which blooms once in twelve years. Recommended to visit during noon as the place will not be crowded. You could have a nice view of the Palani hills. Photos are strictly not permitted inside the temple.

You would like this place if you like visiting temples! A small template on top of a hill. The temple is clean and quite. No crowd, when we went!

What a serene place. It's located at relatively high point. Those who want to experience peace and spirituality must visit this place. Very quite and simple. The Kurinji flower last bloomed in 2006 and will bloom after 12 years in 2018. It would be worth planning a visit in 2018

Nice little temple which satisfies the spiritual side of our holiday. The hill offers good views of Palani hills and beyond on sunny days.

Less crowded during this time of the year. It rained a bit but manageable. I stayed back in the vehicle as both the kids were sleeping. we did not in the afternoon at around 2 pm. The best part is that the temple never closes during the afternoon. it is open right through the day.
