Beautiful and scenic place.. An idol of Lord Nataraj and beautiful surroundings... The shape of the temple is the main attraction

A great place to visit, even if you are not particularly religious. A temple that looks more like an Egyptian pyramid with a traditional Nataraja idol worshipped in the traditional Tamil way.

This is a very very small temple of natraj with lot of greenery around. We were the only visitors there. It's pyramid shape is its main point of attraction.

This place is a bit far from Pondicherry. You have to drive some 10 Km from the central Pondicherry . The place is very nice with a nice garden around it. Its near to a beach, the beach is very serene and wonderful.

The temple sanctum is peaceful and quiet. Outside seems to be too barren and could do with a properly maintained garden
