  • Ideal place for maditation. It is pleasant and peace full place. It had its importance due to Ramana maharshi lived from 1915 to 1922 .& Where his mother joined him. The asramam is a cave. It is situated on Hill 1 mile from Ramanasramam. The whole Hill is considered as a temple, so while climbing the devoties were take off the shoes. I surprised the foreigners are also climbing hill without sandles.. This place was heavily crouded with foreigners (ramana maharshi devoties). MUST WISIT PLACE.
  • Very peaceful place. You can mediate without any disturbance and enjoy the serenity of nature.
  • skandasramam is in the middle of the tiruvannamalai hill, there are two route to reach. i suggest you to go to sri ramashramam , park your vehicle and leave the footwear, from there, a very beautiful path way leads you toward skandasramam. . it may take more than 30 minutes (by walk) to reach so you need to carry water bottles and food.(careful with the monkeys) i have seen some women selling butter milk . some guys selling beautiful statues.
  • Nice place and super view spot in thiruvannamalai hill to see a temple
  • Beautiful and peaceful spot on the hill. Powerful place for meditation and reflection.
