Unless you have strong belief in this temple and deity, it need not be on must visit list for Madurai.
Core of the temple is carved out from rock and though the temple is beautiful, it's not an exceptional sight. And from that perspective, it's an average temple and therefore not a must visit.
It's around 7 km from Periyar bus stand and while we traveled by auto-rickshaw (Rs 120-140, one way), bus no. 48 is also available from Periyar bus stand which drops just 500m from the temple.
