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.

Balaji Temple at Valparai is maintained by Estate owners and was clean. The walking to reach from parking area is quite difficult for elder people. Management can think to allow vehicles till Temple. It was a good place to visit.
