The Thiruneer (sacred powder) Malai which is the sixth Hill is slippery and adventurous. This hill is descending when we climb and ascending when we return.
Also there are attractions like Seethai vanam, Beeman Urundai,
Stala Theertham : Kaithatti Sunai, Paampatti sunai, Aandi Sunai
Tips : Before climbing you have to get the bamboo sticks. This is not much needed when we climb. It is very necessary when we ascend down the hill. The stick gets the vibration and power so that pilgrims bring it to home and keep in Pujai room.
