Too crowded but good Darshan is possible.we can enjoy the divinity everywhere.. The cable car service can manage crowds very slowly only.. the staff are rude, but .. If you choose the winch or cable still, last stage still includes steep steps.

Must visit temple for hindu devotee's. We had already booked for golden chariot well in advance. Golden Chariot offering to the lord is very special in Palani Murugan Hill Temple. Lord Darshan was done after the Golden Chariot offering.

Lord Murugan gave us a very good darshan. After the Darshan, we sat few moments at Bhogar Mandap to worship and thank Bhogar for making the idol for us. Words cannot express the feeling one would get after this pilgrimage and one should experience it.

Step climbing can take 30 to 45 mins, if you take intermittent breaks. Meanwhile, if you are booking for offerings of Golden Chariot then the Darshan is available for 5 people in that ticket itself. You have Darshan tickets... More
