  • One of the ancient and magnificent temple. Very divine with full of positive atmosphere. I can keep on explaining but one should visit for the experience.
  • Nice temple. But there was too much rush. Lot of agents around which will ask anything so bargain hard. If there is rush expected don't use personal car, you won't find place to park it.
  • a very pretty temple in the very center. cameras or telephones can not be brought inside. for the temples I would not go back to Madurai.
  • A temple where you can worship God at three different avatars at 3 floor levels. This temple is just 1km away from Madhurai Bus stand.
  • Heavenly place. Infinite positive energy. Please visit the Lord alone in the morning when the temple doors open. You will be moved by His ethereal presence.
