Very Big temple, with almost all deities under one temple. The temple needs some renovation but it gives you a very good energy in the temple.

This temple is said to be very powerful and a divine place for worshipping Lord Murugan. Time I spent here was very effective as I got to know more historical incidents about the power of Lord Murugan.
