Lord Krishna is worshiped as a Charioteer here. Big temple, though not as famous as Guruvayoor and Padmanabhaswamy temples in Kerala, but is a very religious spot. Paalpayasam (prasadam) is very famous here.

WE went for the morning darshan. We got the Wella- paysam as prasadam. (Jaggery ). Pal paysam (Milk) was to be distributed after 12 noon,. First 30 would get half litre paysam. Rest would get limited quantity. Over 200 people daily take the paal paysam prasadam. Visit was really good.
