I have visited this temple with family & friends. The main deity - Lord Krishna was so wonderful to see. The poojas were performed well in the temple, we visited the temple on Saturday morning, so it was more crowded, but really we had a good darshan. Got a real divine feel in the temple.

This is easily reachable and the deities are having immense power and if you pray with utmost devotion, all your wishes will definitely come true. The prasadams offered at this temple is without salt, but if you taste it, it will taste as though... More

before you go out of our hotel, make sure you visit the toilet as there are NO toilets near the temple area..This is the most saddest part of the trip

Visiting on days other than Saturday will give you a lot of time to have a darshan of this beautiful deity. Lord puts on a bigggg smile which makes your tiredness go off. On Saturdays, except the temple to be open till 1.30 AM in the noon... Temple is maintained super clean. Plan to visit Patteeswaram, Thirusakthi muttram and Thirunageswaram.... More

This temple close to Thirunageswaran has a beautify deity of Lord Vishnu. The Pandits who do the pujas here explain the history of the temple and how the Lord came to be called Uppilliappan[Lord who doesnt take salt(uppu in tamil)]. The temple has a 2 layered praharam . In the first layer of the praharam you can see beautiful paintings... More
