The temple is famous for its cleanliness and following strict ritual practices. One can get utmost satisfaction inside. The security arrangement and display boards with updated programmes are excellent.

Centrally located near Adyar signal.. ultimate to see Lord Vishnu in anantha shayanam.. quite a huge temple.. it can get really crowded and busy during certain days such as vaikunta ekadasi and new year... car parking can be a problem on these days since there's no exclusive car parking for the temple.. they renovated the temple some years back..

Visit the temple on saturdays and my advise would avoid your car if feasible else park it away from temple. I had peaceful darshan and the prasad at this Mandhir is not to be missed!
