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.

A Very Old Temple in Kodaikanal . A must see of all also has great view behind the temple and if your one that extremely lucky you might the see the Kurinji flowers bloom which happens every 12yrs.

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.

Visited the temple with family one evening. For any city dweller visiting Kodaikanal this temple is a must visit. Not due to any spiritual importance or anything. It is a very small temple in a calm and quiet ambience in a lovely place. Great temple. I felt like sitting there for a long time. All temples have to be kept... More

Kurinji Andavar temple is one of the holiest temples (the locals say). It was really a nice temple with some excellent view.

Nice view and very peaceful darshan. There was a flower festival in May. Nice pookolam and decorations. You also get a view of palani, if the sky is clear . Try the ginger tea outside the temple.

This temple spot offers a great view point of the surrounding areas of the region. The temple by itself is pretty small and neat one. Can be combined with a couple of nearby attractions like the park.
