Trek through thick forest to reach Thirunelli Temple, an ancient, isolated site sitting at 900 m (3,000 ft) above sea level. The route to the temple winds through a wildlife sanctuary with plenty of opportunities to spot the local residents. Small streams, ponds, waterfalls, and an old stone aqueduct pulling in water from a nearby spring contribute to the harmonious nature of the temple's surroundings. The pilgrimage site, dedicated to Lord Maha Vishnu, is believed to be more than 1,000 years old, with remains of ancient villages uncovered in the nearby forests.

Very beautiful and ancient temple with spectacular backdrop of mountains. Drive is scenic. Abundant parking is available and it is not crowded. Definitely a place to visit. Just need to keep temple timings in mind, else you will have to return without being able to view the deity.
Beautiful place situated inside green lush forest, driving to the place itself is an excitement. temple is a historical place and lot of devotees from different places visit here. on the way to temple you can see lot of wild life. driving in the evening is not suggestible. truly a divine and spiritual place.
