Nice scenic drive to a pretty little town. Temple is nice clean and not very crowded on regular days, The priest we met seems very knowledgeable. We couldn't visit palani but going to this temple made me feel fulfilled.

Its a very old temple and great maintenance. Good for spiritual lovers and need to visit without any doubt. Little far from Kodai main city but worth it.

Local people have strong belief in this temple, and it is nestled in the village, where, step cultivation farming method is followed. This temple is enroute to Mannavanur Lake, you can halt here to offer prayers to God and have snacks or take snacks break.
