"Nice place, but in Season days traffic will be heavy and No Parking places for Four Wheelers.So visit this place in morning Time(7:00-9:00AM) to avoid struck on traffic. In here you can see long view of Palani Murugan Temple. Get Religious touch and start your journey around Kodaikanal... Good luck😊 "

"Not worth a place. If you are coming here for a religious reason then I have nothing to say. But I really didn't like the way the drivers have made this a tourist attraction. There is nothing to see. Even the temple is new. "
