Visit Skanda Vale
We offer a range of day pilgrimage and overnight accommodation options. Pre-booking is essential.
The Lord Murugan Temple and Maha Shakti Temple are only open at certain times of day, so please be sure to plan your pilgrimage around these temple opening times.
The Sri Ranganatha Temple and Samadhi of Guru Sri Subramanium are open all day.
When is the best time to visit?
School holidays, religious festivals and full moon weekends are the high points of our year, but also our busiest. If you would like a quieter pilgrimage you may prefer to visit outside these times.
