Aappur - NithyaKalyana Perumal Temple

This temple is at about 10 Kms from Singa Perumal koil and at about 5 kms from Thirukkachur towards Sriperumbudur, at a village called Aappur, in a small hill called Aushadagiri (hill of medicinial herbs). By climbing about 500 steps you can reach the hill the steps are somewhat steeper than usual. In the hilltop you can see the beauty of the Nityakalyana perumal as well as beauty of the Nature with with full of lakes and reserve forests.

If you are going from Tambaram on the GST Road towards Singa Perumal Koil (SP Koil), you will have to take a right turn for The Sriperumpudur road. There is a huge highways name board on the GST Road, just after the SP Koil name board. Car can go up to the steps of this hill temple.

The temple is small and is open from 7:30am till 10:30am in the morning. Check out the availability of archagar on 9444142239-Balaji before making a trip. We (myself and Sai friends) made a trip to this temple on the new year day of 2010 and we enjoyed the trip very much.

The temple is small with one Sannidhi & beautiful.The steps are a little steeper for oldies- so we couldn't see many old people. You will pant a bit while climbing up. The deep breath you take will only be beneficial as you will inhale a lot of medicinal oxygen..

There are substantial number of monkeys on top of the hills, so be careful with your belongings.
