Admire Arulmigu Balathandayuthapani Temple, an impressive and important Hindu site offering views of the surrounding scenery. Since the early 1800s, a shrine in the area has been the focus of the Thaipusam celebration, a festival dedicated to Murugan, the Hindu god of war. The shrine was moved in 1850 to the present site, and the site has been expanded with a large temple added in 2012. The new temple includes a seven-story gopuram (main tower) that measures at 21.6 m (71 ft) tall and displays a grand style of Dravidian architecture.

First time visit to this temple for this year deepavali holidays. Temple situated at the hilltop. God Muruga was in raja alangaram and was happy to visit. Felt very high vibe. Temple environment is awesome. Thank you!
A temple with strong divine vibrations, a must visit temple for Murugan devotees and all.
