Rs. 5 per person (in 2008) in shared auto rickshaw from Sholingur bus stand to the temple footsteps.

Travel by the auto rickshaw up to the footsteps of the hill to save time and energy else you will be tired walking in hot sun and find difficult walking 1305 steps.

However, there is a coolie service available. It costs Rs. 600 per person (in 2008) which includes both ascending and descending the hill.

Note: This temple is on top of a hill. While walking 1305 steps you will come across several tens of monkeys in groups which are hungry and look for people carrying eatables such as bannana, coconut, fruits, flowers and soft drinks. Those monkeys always look out for people carrying food, flowers or bags. They attack in groups and grab eatables, ladies vanity bags, ladies purse, luggage bag, and cell phones from gents’ shirt pocket. They will not spare the flowers which ladies wear on their hair/behind the head. They will grab those flowers and eat. You cannot fight the monkeys. To overcome them, walk in empty hands.

Also at the footsteps of the hill buy a lengthy stick/cane costs Rs. 2 (in 2008). Do not beat the monkeys with the cane/stick as they are harmless. Use them only to scare the monkeys. If you beat them, they will get angry, you will be a victim and seen in the hospital.

Do not walk or climb steps alone as sometimes monkeys are dangerous. Even if you want to sit and rest, sit in a group and rest. Do not sit or sleep alone. Always walk in a group of 5+ people. Do carry water bottles without fail as you will be tired of walking.
