  • The location is serene with a pleasant breeze whistling through from all directions. There are a lot of snack stalls that sell excellent vada and kesari. Don't miss it
  • Excellent architecture and a very peaceful place. Awesome breeze throughout the temple. Take your time and go through each and every corner of the temple, you will find excellent carvings. A must visit if you are anywhere around thenkasi. Also even you visit Courtallam, you should see this as well as it's very close (roughly 30 mins drive) to the same.
  • Peaseful atmosphere and Surrounding,. the cool haze runs all time from the West towards East that's very nice to pilgrims to keep cool.
  • Built by the Pandya Kings, the massive gopura of the temple is the second largest in Tamil Nadu. This temple is also known as Ulagamman Temple The temple is dedicated to Kasi Viswanathar a form of Lord Shiva in a self incarnated form (swayambu). It is believed that worshipping the Lord in this temple is as equal to worshipping the Lord in Kasi. 
  • Tenkasi....Wind architecture wonder .....one of the strong testimonial of Tamil architectural skill... you would feel the breeze of wind vice versa on both sides on gopuram.....
