This is one of the six houses (known as Arupadai veedu) of Lord Swaminatha Swami). Even though it is known as Malai (meaning hill) it may have maximum 100 steps from ground level to the mandir. Generally not much crowded except on special occasions.

This is one of the 6 abodes of Karthik swamy. The place is good for having a peaceful darshan of lord Muruga. You have to climb up some steps to have darshan.

I dont think so. Kumbakonam is hardly 8 kms and has all categories of accomodation.
