Visited along with my family. Spend 2hrs waiting for winch car and 1.30hrs for rope car. But enjoyed my darsan as free darsan was less people whereas paid darsan was crowded. Don't know why people always prefer paid darsan,when free was quick.

I went to Palani Murugan Temple. The Palani Murugan Temple is one of the six prominent Murugan Temples in Tamil Nadu. It is believed that Lord Karthikeya left his luxury life of Kailash and came here to gain knowledge. It is great place to go.
