  • This is an iconic mandir for South Indians. Has so much culture preserved. Built atop a hill, have to climb a lot of stairs. Very scenic and you will breathe clean, fresh air. 
  • Here normally south Indian people go to worship the god.This temple is situated at top of hill on main road at R.K.Puram in New Delhi.
