On the way to Pazamidir Sholai, this is at the foot of the hill. Nice, calm, big temple, where you can spend some time. If you have good time to spend in Madurai, you can surely go here.

Nestled in the foot of the Solaimalai, this is a peaceful temple of Maha Vishnu. It is very near the Pazhamudircholai Murugan Temple. It was not too crowded when we went. Do try the wonderful fruits that you get just outside the temple.
