One has to make a very steep walk in hill slope to visit this temple. Very lonely place. Not advisable to visit post 4pm, as the place is not safe due to leopard straying in the estate.

It is located in the hills of valparai and the narrow path that leads to temple is very steep. i struggled a lot to climb the path and it is very tiring. But one the temple is reached, it is very refreshing and gives peace.
