It is very near to trichy city. Climb is not suitable for elders. Visiting the temple is definitely good for both health and mind as the climb ensures it.

It's a marvelous temple built atop a rock. It has many temples inside to include of lord Shiva and Ganesha.. many steps to climb.. the area has limited parking .. so better hire an autorickshaw for visit. Carry water bottles .. Cameras are allowed
