Today I started my sightseeing trip after lunch as my health was not well. The sky was covered with dark grey clouds. My first stop was Kurinji temple. This beautiful temple is dedicated to Lord Muruga and is surrounded by picturesque view of Vaigai dam and Palani Hills. This temple is a venue for summer festival which is celebrated in the month of May every year. This place is also very popular for blossom of Kurinji flowers once in every 12 years.
Kurinji Andavar Murugan temple is famous for its Kurinji flower which blossoms in the area only once every 12 years. The deity here is called Sri Kurinji Easware. The temple was built by Leelavathi Ramanathan. Thousands of devotees visit this temple during the summer festival to seek the blessings of Lord Muruga and it gives you beautiful views of Northern Plains and Palani Hills.
