It is a very good temple. Beautiful view of Palani temple top, if weather is permitting. Good Kodai city view. Also great green valley view.

Ordinary temple. Small. Lots of shops outside. But you can see the kurinji plant here which only blooms every 12 years once. The last was 2012 i think

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!
