  • This temple will make you pray even before you reach its parking grounds. Reason? Simple! The estate road is just too narrow and a vehicle in the opposite direction can be a nightmare. The narrow road sits quite high off the ground and you will have to reverse your car up hill or downhill with a cliff to your side. Your driving skills will be on demand. Reach the temple, you will feel relaxed if you don't think of the journey downhill.
  • The past glory is gone. It has become commercialized with a grumpy and angry priest who is just going through the motions. It used to be so free and open to visit the temple. One can meditate and enjoy the serenity. Not any more. It has become a huge tourist attraction. The approach road is so very narrow. But even full sized buses are allowed on that. It is very difficult to drive with opposing traffic added with rude cab operators. Not a pleasant experience anymore and you can definitely skip this place, if you want to visit a temple. The parking is far below and a small hike is required which makes it difficult for old people. Skip it and there are better things to see in Valparai.
  • This is not big or ancient one. This is built by the tea estate property owner . There are restrictions for entering the temple. They allow to enter this area only when the temple is opened for dharshan. But location is very nice with tea estate hills .
  • It's hill station Balaji temple. Feels like very peaceful place with coolest breath. Since it's in hill station, roads should be well formed.
  • Small temple.. well maintained by private party.. it s situated middle of a tea estate.. not allowed to take pictures.. have to walk 1km to reach the temple..
