  • One of the Hindu temple, which can be visited by Western guests of other religions. Photos may make against a little earnest money (100 rupees). Before maybe ask for when the innermost area is open. Worth a visit.

  • peace full and very good atmosphere, good temple with lots of festival,This is the oldest temples in Kerala. This temple dedicated to Subrahmanya Swamy is known as Dakshina Palani(Southern Palani). It is believed that the temple was established even before the advent of Kaliyuga.
  • One of the LARGEST (Mathilkkettu) & ANCIENT temples of Kerala and the main diety is SUBRAMANIA, Which is a couple of kilometers away from the NAGAR KSHETRAM = MSNNARASHALA. The festivals are very famous, which is filled with art performances by Top Artists when the East Nada will be covered by road side-vedors (fancy items for Ladies and children). West Nada provides variety of utensils, etc. Rare forms of Arts and rituals (like Ambalappuzha Vela, etc) can be viewed. KATHAKALI is performed all days through the Utsavam, almost making the festival a 24Hrs event for 10 days. WORTH A GREAT TEMPLE to visit! Also known as DAKSHINA PALANI, the temple followes the traditions (can't wear Shirt and Bannian inside Naalambalam. The Gopurams are tall and the art works are worth praising.
