Denkanikottai (தேன்கனிகோட்டை), really don't know the reason behind the name of this town. The name in tamil literally means HONEY(THAEN) FRUIT(KANI) FORT(KOTTAI), when was broken into three words.

This small temple town is situated in the Thally Taluk of Krishnagiri District, TamilNadu. Arulmigu Bettarayaswamy Perumal temple with its beautiful Pond is awesome and is the crowd puller to this town. This temple dated back to 4 centuries or so, is an artistic colorful temple. Even today, people from the nearby villages use the temple tank water for drinking purposes. This town is 25 kms from Hosur and 65kms from Bangalore.

Few of my pictures from my recent visit to Denkanikottai.
