Very old temple and majestic view. Big idol of Lord Vishnu with Lord Brahma emerging from navel button and Shiv Linga beneath one hand. View of God's idol was very satisfying and immensely peace giving. Also took prasadam for our family. Don't forget to wear dhoti before darshan.

Beautiful temple. Well managed. You can buy a special ticket for Rs 150 for a couple. They give Prasadam free with it. The Pratima is huge. The paintings on the wall are beautiful. It was raining but still we enjoyed.
