Apart from the fact that you get a clear view of Palani, nothing great about it. But since not too many tourists so temple visit was OK

I love this temple and have visited many times. It is very neat and tidy which is a huge plus for me. Flowers are sold outside in cute little baskets and they are very reasonably priced. The place itself is very peaceful and filled with good vibrations. Perfect for prayer or simply contemplation or introspection. Definitely recommend it!

Must go if you are visiting Kodaikanal. Along with temple visit, you get a nice view. We could see our hotel from there, my son was very excited. Chettiar park is nearby, cover that as well.
