  • Very nice and beautiful temple. The main Temple is located on the rock Mount. The stairs leading to the main temple is good, even elders and children can climb up with minimum guidance. You can peacefully worship there. Your children can enjoy the moment. From top the surrounding is scenic. Your heart will be filled with peace. You may feel to visit again and again. There is a temple at ground level too. When main temple remains closed in the noon, you can stay here. All public facilities are available at outside the temple. Open free parking by the side of the public facility. Enjoy your trip.
  • Excellent temple of Murugan. Named கருணைபுரிவான் காலமாறிவன் குன்றாகுடியான் It is near by PILLIYARPATTI. Chettinad community is divided by the murugan Temple. Into 76 places. So nearby to Karaikudi. One of the greatest temple. Festival days தை பூசம் கார்த்திகை மற்றும் பல.

The main God is Lord Muruga in this temple.Lord murugan is in very small hill top with his two wifes valli and dhevanai.At the hill top Lord murugan statue has six faces and named as Shanmuganatha perumal. At the bottom of the hill also there is a small temple for Lord murugan in this temple Lord murugan named as Palani andavar because he poses as child murugan and the statue of murugan is in swing.The reason why lord murugan is in swing is that during his childhood lord murugan and his brother lord vinayagar fought for mango,during that time Lord murugan is being convinced by puttng him in swing.This hill temple is being opened by Kundrakudi adikalaar. At the bottom murugan temple's roof sealing all the zodiac sign is there and there is a myth that all the zodiac signs and people are getting Lord's power.
