Climb the 50 stairs to reach the hilltop temple of Marudamalai Temple, and enjoy the spiritual atmosphere. Dedicated to Murugan, the Hindu god of war, the temple probably dates back to the 12th century. After your ascent, take in the panoramic views of the Coimbatore city skyline and the verdant hills that surround the ancient structure.
