The temple compound is huge and majestic. Of course, the payasam is still good. But something seem to be missing, in my opinion.

Visiting this temple gives a sense of calmness. If you visit in December (when they have festivals) you would see the temple decorated with oil lamps!

Restriction to wear a shirt as tradition was not to my liking.Otherwise a good temple.Insisting travellers to emove shirt,bani an etc can be a hurdle as one would not be prepared for it.Devotion must take priority and not our dress.

The temple is at the out skirts of the city,near the new Medical college.The place makes you feel that one is in a different era .I loved the place because of its serenity.They serve Payasum in the Temple which is really worth dying for.I visited the place in October 2013.

It is perhaps impressive from a worshipping standpoint; I cannot comment on that, but as a tourist attraction it was very average. I was rather upset to see the elephant chained up so it could only... More

I am not a religious person so I am not a good assessor of how impressive the temple is from that point of view but I have seen dozens of Hindu and Buddhist temples in Sri Lanka Vietnam Thailand and Cambodia , some far more spectacular, some very modest, but all we'll maintained. I was disappointed that a national treasure... More
