Excellent, marvelous deity. Huge. Try to go during less crowd days to enjoy the view of the God peacefully. Don't miss the Yoga Narasimmha just behind the sanctum during your prahara walk.

The Alagarkoil Temple and Shrine is well worth a visit. The temple is dedicated to the Lord Vishnu and is situated at the foot of the beautiful Alagar Hills. Not as hot as in Madurai, but lots of open green grounds to see as well.
