When we visited, the place was going through renovation. There weren't too many people inside the temple. However, the view outside the temple is quite good. Can visit this place once and also visit the Chettiar Park nearby.
The temple was being repainted and renovated for Kumbabhishekam to be held soon...Lord Muruga stands in a majestic manner, blesses and protects the devotees...lovely temple..calm and quiet...
