Lying in close proximity to Erode, the flourishing industrial town of
Tamil Nadu, this hill temple attained eminence due to by
liberal grant of boons by the presiding deity Murugan. It claims an additional
advantage over several shrines extant in and around this district head quarters
town, for its potentialities in serving as a picnic centre of exceeding
importance. Fun-loving youth and white-collared gentry visit this charming hill
on their week ends. As the hill atop offers colourful panoramic views on all
sides, their drooping spirits get revived and prepare them for work ensuing the
six days. Hence preference for frequent visits. The temple built to suit modern
taste is quite grand and the Lord installed is enticing in size, shape and
sculptural adornments. Regular worship is offered with due devotion. Periodical
festivals lure huge crowds.
