It is situated in Tamilnadu on the way to Tharapuram from Oddanchatram (via) Moolanur. It is 15kms from moolanur and the village is called Kondarangi Keeranur.

Description :

This Hill has a steep Conical shape and it is about 748meters high. There is a very wonderful Rock cut Temple on the top where Lord Shiva showers his blessings in the name of Malligarjuneswarar. It is a Swayambhu Lingam ( Formed on its owns ). The hill itself looks like a Huge Linga.

The steps are rock cut and it seems very difficult to climb the hill. But with Lord shiva's blessings it is very easy to reach the top. It takes two hours to reach the top. If there is Rain or high winds it will be difficult to ascend or descend. There is a perennial spring on the top.

There is a Cave where Sidhhars and Thavasis have done meditation. There is also a Temple located at the foothills known as Ketti Malleswarar Sri Bhramaramba Temple.

Hello Mr. Rajesh, Thanks for putting up this blog. Just wanted to know whether we can go to the temple any day or on a weekend or only on a Bournami or amavasai?

Hi Antony Lawrence, the official website of the temple, says "Pooja timings will be at 10:00AM approx. (confirm once before start climbing top), so they kindly request to start journey at the bottom of the hill as earlier as possible, because it takes 1.5 hours to travel from bottom to top.
