Dedicated to Lord Murugan or Subramanya, this temple situated on a hill top is one of the must see places if you are in Coimbatore.
One can reach the top of the hill by climbing the steps or by road -though you need to still climb around 70-80 steps after that.
The temple and its surroundings are kept clean and there was ample parking space -as there were no special celebration or festivities.
The temple opens around 6.00 am , closes around 1.00 pm and reopens around 2.00 pm and closes for the day by 8.30 pm.
Not much fine dining options around. If you are not particular on ambiance or don't mind the local cuisine, there are few small eateries near the entrance which leads to the hill.
We had our lunch in one of the small eateries run by a group of women. The place was quite clean and hygienic and the food was good.

Yesterday 5.3.21 visited the temple. Fine atmosphere. Good darshan of Lord Murugan. Not much crowd.Own vehicles and mini buses go upto top . From their we have to climb around 100 plus steps steep but not continuous. Mobile tower signal is difficult. . Due to Corona Archana are not done in all temples. We can visit Esha Shiva temple from there.

Another Hill Temple of Lord Subramanya
Nov 2020
This Temple was at a drive of 30 Minutes from Hotel Heritage Inn. There are around 700 Steps to be climbed to reach the temple. There is also a road, which goes right up to the temple,. wherein one needs to climb around 50 steps or so.
I took the stairs and it took me around 30 minutes to climb. The views are worth wathcing while climbing. No hassles/problems from any animals during the climb. The temple is a mid sized one. There is also a temple of Pambatti Sitthar near the temple. Its also a must visit temple.

Went to the temple in evening time for Abheshakam..., had nice dharshan... needed to sit and enjoy breeze touching when sitting wall-side of temple.

Truly you can feel. Maruthamalai has so many medicine based trees 🌲 and feel such nice breeze and divine and wonderful atmosphere.

Climbing the stairs up to the Marudamalai temple, with people chanting all around you, and the occasional cool cucumber
Jan 2020 • Solo
is a blissful experience. Once you reach atop you are rewarded with majestic views of Coimbatore city, and a temple that is serene and beautifully maintained. A wonderful experience one must experience while in Coimbatore. The temple’s 1300 year history is a testament to ancient Bharat’s culture and unbroken quest for mukti.

Winding road up the hill drowns you in that spirituality and gets you into religious fervour. Once you reach the top, the stairs up to the sanctorum satisfies you. Darshan of the Lord relieves you of all anguish, pain and uncertainty. Great feeling, great atmosphere. Must visit.

This temple was popularised in the 80s by the movie DEIVAM. After 23 years we went to this temple . The temple dedicate to Lord Muruga has been renovated in recent years. Have to climb up about 30odd steps . At the side of the aathi Murugan temple there are steps leading down to the samadhi of “paampaati sithar”. One can sit and meditate here. Only problem Is we have to clim back up the same way. worth a visit . This temple is on the Guruvayur to Coimbatore road.
