Polur is 35kms(approx)from Thiruvannamalai(Arunachala).The hill(Parvatamalai) is 3500 feet(Approx) high from the sea level. On the top of the hill, Lord Mallikarjunaswamy(Sivan) temple is located, which is believed to be 2000 years old.

This hill is full of herbal(mooligai) plants. There is another route from Kadaladi,to reach Parvathamalai, which is shorter and when compared to Thenmathimagalam route. Thenmathimagalam route is lenghty but easier to reach the top of Parvathamalai. However,both routes joins at a common point, and it is a single route from there which leads to Lord Mallikarjunaswamy temple on top of the hill.

    What a trip it was. Had awesome fun right from beginning till the end of the trip . I'd say this is one of the best groups that I've travelled with ghac so far. Perfect Co-ordination between group members. Met people from different walks of life and age groups, such a versatile bunch. Though going to Fort in the afternoon was not the right time, we subsided it with night trek. It took almost 5 hours covering a distance of 4.36 kms starting from kadaladi to reach the peak, moving time was approximately 2 hours 36mins as we took long food breaks. One can see breathtaking views from the peak. Good that many of us choose thenmadhimangalam route while trekking down early in the misty morning as we got a chance to explore a different route. A movie will never be a super hit until and unless it has a perfect ending, I believe our trip is no less than a movie, never in my life I felt so tensed as in this trip. Never expected that the bus would breakdown at the last minute .
