Shevaroy Temple, Yercaud

3.9
#1 of 6 in Historic Sites in Yercaud
Perched at an altitude of 1,623 m (5,326 ft) sits Shevaroy Temple, a dark hermetic cave that shelters the idols of Lord Shevaroyan and goddess Kaveri. The panoramic view of the surrounding mountains from this plateau-like summit will give you plenty of photo ops. Upon entry stands the deity's idol, while a darkened tunnel behind it continues inward--according to temple's priests, it extends about 480 km (290 mi). Nice cool weather at such altitudes makes the visit refreshing and enjoyable, but bring extra clothing just in case.

  • The views are ok... Don't expect to be a big cave temple.. It is a very small cave of 20 steps. Can be avoided.  more »

  • It's a nice place to chill out with your friends and family. Nice view, brisk cold breeze and sunset. It's a good place for picnic as well. It does get cold when sun starts to set down. The place is quite big so you won't have to worry about people intruding your personal space
  • Temple St hill top in Yercaud. Can reach easily by car. Enough parking space. Good view of sunset. Temple is inside a rock. Entrance carved out of rock. Inside is cool.
