I visited the temple on November 9th. Accomodation facilities are not that much,. and you may find costly. Better to plan like after visiting the temple you can head for some other place and stay there if you are looking for cheaper and better accommodation facilities. Sarpa dosha pooja is the main activity inside the temple. You have to call... More

Temple is maintained well, but problem is they don't follow any system nor give any instructions. They just allow everyone like sheep herd. People are very bad and they are literally very bad We had such a bad experience and staff of the temple are also very harsh and if you ask anything, there response is go stand in line.

The temple is very famous in south India and located inside the forest. The trip to the temple from Sakleshpur is excellent. You have to drive through thick forest even no sunlight will fall on the road. Recently we have visited the temple and the road condition is excellent, I think its newly constructed few months back. You can enjoy... More

Park close to the temple as parking is ample. Seva office is outside and get the ticket early (we picked up the seva tickets at night itself... More

The view of temple with a hill behind is truly amazing!! Attend the puja and harathi at around 7PM and don't miss the deeparadhana around the entry of the divine sanctum. You will... More
