Not to be missed. This is one of the most beautiful structures in Kodai. Should not be missed for its beauty and serenity. Worth the visit.

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
