"Good point and many visitors visit" new review

  • 4.00/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
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"

  • 2.50/7
  • 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.

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"

  • 5.00/7
  • 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.

"Worth visit at a temple on Shevaroy Hill"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Aug 8, 2014
The Servarayan Temple is in the peak of the Yercaud hill. Also you will have some new experience when you will to go inside the cave where the Lord Shevaroy is there. It is said that this god guards the whole Shevaroy Hill. You can spend some time viewing Yercaud Lake and some parts of Yercaud from here.
