Amazing temple. Must visit place. It's a small detour from the highway. The tall 18 storied Gopuram and the Shiva statue captivate visitors from far away. Reach early in the morning, to have a quick darshan. Then don't miss the elevator ride inside the Gopuram,...More

Suggested to book in advance if you are travelling on long weekends. Hotels go full on 3-4 day holidays. Walk-in low budget hotels will be there, but then you risk if they go full on first come first serve basis.
