    I think, they missed one of the main and oldest and traditional — No 1 the best temple to mention in this list.
    I am not saying blindly no 1. I will explain. First River/Samdra stanam – available at kotiteertham , 2. Deepam — We can keep Deepams at near sivalingams and so many sivalingams invented by parsurama in this temple premises. 3. Mula virat Has 1 crore/ koti sivalingams in main idol it self. 4. Kamakshi temple with srichakram by Jagadguru Audi sankaracharya 5. Shanmukha sri subrahmanya swamy temple 6. 18 steps ayyappa swamy temple day mind relief package… These all features are not available in any of the above temples.
