Marudhamalai Hill Temple
Better known as Marudamalai, this place is mainly known as the Subramanyaswamy Temple. This place is completely dedicated to Lord Murugan, a form of Lord Vishnu. This is also a beautiful hill station and like most of the Murugan Temples this one is also on top of a hillock. The Pillayar Temple on the foothills of the temple is another tourist attraction. People mostly come here in seek of blessings of Lord Murugan.
A major city and commercial hub in Tamil Nadu, Coimbatore offers not much in terms of touristic attractions unless you're on your way to Ooty or any of the Nilgiri hill stations. Although some places might make for really interesting stopovers, such as the Kovai Kutralam Falls, Vaidehi Waterfalls and Thoonakkadavu Lake. For a taste of knowledge, there's the Gass Forest Museum, which is a natural history museum, or pay a visit to G.D. Naidu Industrial Exhibition, a science and exhibition centre which has a lot to exhibit in terms of innovation and science. The city is home to innumerable temples, some of them being Marudamalai and Velliangiri hill temple. Indira Gandhi Wildlife Sanctuary and National Park makes for an interesting visit for nature lovers. Places such as Shree Annapoorna, Junior Kuppanna and Anandhas Quality Vegetarian are well known for their Indian dishes.
