Renganadar Gnanagiri is a beautiful hill temple with steps leading to the temple. A motorable road is also present but requires very careful driving as the road is steep and slippery with stones and gravel. The temple is beautiful and quite unique with 3 Renganadar’s – Aadhi Renganathar, Azhagiya Renganathar, Anugraha Renganathar. It would be a good experience to walk up on a nice evening or a drizzly day.

Renganadar Gnanagiri at Malaipalayam is about 2 kilometers west of Karunkuzhi (3 kilometers before Madurantakam when you go from Chennai). Take the right here and drive up to the temple base where there is a nice Anjaneya Shrine, the steps and road uphill start from here.

None locally. Madurantakam is fine for simple food.
