The temple entry and exit are very well marked and organised. There is a battery cart for the aged and the disabled as also wheel chairs. The temple premises are very well maintained and clean. None of the usual jostling and pushing.

We visited the temple in December 2013. Car parking is a bit of a challenge - our driver dropped us off and waited for us at a pre-decided location. No leather items are allowed inside the temple - there is a thorough checking at the entrance. Men must deposit all leather goods such as belts at the shoe / footwear... More

You can visit the temple, beach, bhalka tirth and triveni sangam all within half a day. Temple and beach are adjacent to each other. You can visit the beach in the evening and go directly to the temple at the time of Arti.

Although the Evening Light & sound show make us learn the temple history, but light part needs a technical review to make it more attractive and meaningful.
