Sagar Darshan is great place to stay because it allows to walk in to temple any number of times you would like to visit. We could come for Darshana, Aartii, night show and sea view. Its like you being in the temple... More

The vibes are so pleasing that one cannot leave the place in a short time, and the view of the sea cannot be expressed through words one has to see it to feel it.

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.
