This place is a bit far from Pondicherry. You have to drive some 10 Km from the central Pondicherry . The place is very nice with a nice garden around it. Its near to a beach, the beach is very serene and wonderful.

This temple is located near the Dune Eco Resorts at Pudhukuppam, Keelputhupet, Near Pondicherry University on ECR Road. Very peaceful and serene location. No crowd at all, unusual pyramid structure
