This is very blissful place, no matter how hot it's outside and you are sweating. The inside architect of temple makes you so cool and peaceful, makes you feel free and good for meditation, this temple was built in 12th century. If you traveling from Tamil Nadu to Bangalore national highway - take a left before Hosur flyover in the Hosur city. You can reach directly to the top of the hill. Magnificent view of Hosur city!
Don't miss the "tamarind rice" (puliyogare) PRASADAM.
