Temple is old, but not properly maintained. Painting and little renovation will make this temple very pleasant

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
