      hi sandhya

      if yiou prefer to go by train the nearest place you can get down @ Erode from there take a bus and itll take around 2 hrs to reach dharapuram, from bus stand you can take an auto as the temple is just 2 kms distance from Busstand. ITS A NICE temple and swamy is very powerful.


  2. The nearest major railway station is TIRUPPUR. Dharapuram is around 50 kilometres from Tiruppur. Another major station ERODE Junction is 70 kms away from DPM.
