  • Nice and famous temple. Well maintained. Try and avoid going on a auspicious day as it will be very crowded on those days.
  • Abundance of positive vibes. One of the six houses of Lord Subramanya. Beautiful Temple and the deity here stands in full glory to bless one and all.
  • Excellent art in which Linga faces you in all sides. And also one more art which has elephant face on one side and cow face on the other. Do not miss seeing this art. It's on the entrance kopuram.
  • Very Powerful Temple and can feel positive vibrations there. We saw Santhana abhishekam when our first visit. Pray to him, all of our wishes will fulfill.
  • It's one of the six important temples of Lord muruga, temple is located in a small hill, you have to climb few steps to visit muruga here. This temple is neatly maintained and is just walkable distance from the main road.
