  • Just an amazing place where temple is located. The view is mesmerizing. It's one of tallest idol in South India.
  • Beautiful temple situated above a hillock. The Murugan temple on Elk Hill is accessible by a steep road about 1-2 kms winding uphill. The main attraction besides the deity is the huge statue of Murugan outside the temple. The gold painted statue is beautifully maintained and is serene and awe inspiring. The temple itself is neat, simple and darshan is easy to obtain... No big queues as such.
