Bhavani Amman Temple

Bhavani is the second largest river in Tamilnadu. Beyond Avalanche Forest Reserve where thick Shola trees give way to grasslands, there is a temple for Bhavani Amman. The temple is small and simple with the image of the goddess in black stone. This place is believed to be one of the origins of River Bhavani. The river races down the rocks on which this beautiful temple is balanced, it  falls down the hills into the broad valley. Bhavani gathers girth with rain water as it flows downstream into the plains beyond on the east of the Nilgiri.
