This temple boasts of the Kurinji flower which blooms every 12 years only. The temple is made of stone and is quiet unlike most temples in India. It is dedicated to Lord Murugan. The pleasant weather adds to the ambiance to make the visit a great experiences

Nice temple and is one of the tourist spot for the ones visiting Kodai. You must watch the location of this temple! One side, you can view Kodai and the other side, you can see Palani (a little far).. and the location is super valley view..

It is around 3-4 Kms from main town, it takes around 15 minutes to reach there. It may not interest everyone. But, it is a must visit for the followers of Lord Murugan. The temple closes early in the evening, plan to visit during the day time. The view from the temple is very good.
