Nothing so great about this place....It is a very small temple located in the hill top...The main selling point of this place is that the palani hills can be witnessed in a distance from this temple.

It is lord karthikeyan temple ,small and peaceful. Normally you do not fi d karthikeyan temples in North so it is must visit. Temples right there is kodai city view and left is beautiful views of kodaikannal. You can also do shopping here from local shops.

This temple has a lot of ancient values attached to it. Though they've renovated the place recently, the place still holds an ancient feel to it.
