It's one of the more famous South Indian temples around. Well connected and easily reachable by public transport including nearby Metro. Though I personally feel the management should work more on the maintenance, but you won't regret visiting here.

Malai Mandir is typical South-Indian hindu temple in hill in south Delhi, Ramakrishnapuram, near JNU. It is with usual rush and well connected by public transport. It is like usual temple and is often not in the list of tourist's checklist who want to see Delhi in 1-2 days.

This is an iconic mandir for South Indians. Has so much culture preserved. Built atop a hill, have to climb a lot of stairs. Very scenic and you will breathe clean, fresh air.
