The temple is quite good. One should plan early as the waiting time for darshan is around 2 to 3 hours. During festivals this may be more.

Though it's not my first visit, everytime I enter the temple, it feels like the first time. Its really difficult to leave the premises because of the peace of mind that one can find here. For visiting the main shrine be prepared to stand in queue for a good 1 to 2 hours if you are visiting in December because... More
