"Good Place to visit"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
This temple is located at the top of the hills. There are many excellent view points available. It is a very small temple and is one of the best places to visit in Yercaud.

"A simple temple at the highest point in Yercaud"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
The temple is about 7-8 km from the centre of the town. It's a sweet and simple Balaji temple at the highest point in Yercaud. The temple itself is situated inside a cave therefore the entry and exit area is cramped, so if one is visiting this with old parents then please be cautious..

"God is nature"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jan 27, 2016
While entering Yercaud we have confused that God is nature or nature is God. From lake we have started to the temple I think it's 6 kilometre from lake to temple the road and the sites are very interesting and very enjoyable. I have never seen like this Temple ever in my life because the temple is looking so great.

"Good point and many visitors visit"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted Jun 8, 2015
The view from this point is very good. There is a temple and many visitors for the temple. There are a few joy rides and small vendors selling minimal snacks. Nothing much at the top, except for the lovely view since it is the highest point.

"There is nothing to see except the cave temple"

  • 2.5/7
  • Posted Dec 29, 2014
The cave temple was the only visit here and it was very small to enter. The person have to bend down and walk inside the temple for the god's dharshan. They say the cave is more than 2000 years old and still have a underground cave which walk you till Mysore.

"Cave Temple, very dark"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Dec 23, 2014
The Shevorayan temple is a cave temple located at a short distance from Yercaud town. The temple itself is a dark and narrow cave and the presiding deity is Lord Shevaroy. The temple is located at the highest peak on the hill and the view from peak is awesome. This temple is believed to be 2000 years old as per the locals.

"Great driving experience to temple"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Dec 6, 2014
Driving to this temple was a very exciting experience. The roads are so steep you feel as if you will slide down the mountain. The view on both sides of the road very good and very frightening. But the temple was a very small one.
