The celebrated temple lying on Sivagiri hill has many plus points to the jealousy of many hill temples dedicated to Subrahmanya.  It is supposed to have been built by a Chera King, whose image is seen on the northern wall.  Besides enjoying a well built flight of stairs, numbering 1001 steps from foot of hill to the top, it has a Winch Service catering to the needs of ever increasing infirm and old, or aristocrats.  The well-laid out stairs with Manadapams on the way relieve the fatigue of the climbers. On the way, there are many beautiful big size representations of Muruga in the company of parents and also his consorts - Valli and Devasena.  

The central shrine is very spacious and has two prakaras and four grand towers over the imposing entrances.  The main entrance is on the west and has a majestic gopuram.  Many facilities are provided to the visiting bhaktas, like restaurants, cloak rooms etc a top the hills and choultries and rest houses with all amenities down below.  Behind the garbha griha in the first prakara, there are installed beautiful images of ,Sakti, muruga etc., whose visual appeal is great and detain the devotees for hours.
