This temple is heaven on earth. The energy level and vibrations can be physically felt as soon as we stand on front of the main idol of sri lord murugan. The raja alankaram in the evening at 6pm is really not to be missed.

Best to visit during non-festival seasons; the temple is practically empty and you can have the dreamiest darshans of your life; great temple; powerful deity presence; the winch journey is good except that we need to resist the temptation of jumping out and walking down...More
