“A mere temple”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

I shouldn't rate it as poor since it's a temple. But, they shouldn't treat this as an attraction. Sad part is, we couldn't see the flower which blossoms once in 12 years, tjhat's the theme of this attraction.

“Nice temple, exotic location”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Very nice and small temple with an excellent view to near by hills. Must try place; there is a plant which gives flower once in 12 years called "Kurunji". Temple was well maintained.

“Views to either side of the temple are awesome”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

The Temple itself is not so beautiful, but you get to see the upper view of the town and valley which are awesome.

“Murugan Temple”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

This is a Lord Murgan temple (not one of his abodes). Very peaceful temple with darshan form close proximity. And an excellent view of the Palani valley. Photographers will pester you for instant pictures.

“God and Earth”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Lovely temple , small and quaint. Would recommend a walking trip there past the holiday homes and the winding road is a delight in itself. The temple at the end of it and the valley views are the additional reward apart from the burnt calories!
