Tried visiting this temple after reading a lot of review articles through media. It takes 30 minutes by bus from Vellore new bus stand. I reached around 2 pm. The first thing missing is there are no usual temple gopuras anywhere found in the vicinity. Entered the gates and there was no crowd. A person with carry bags gives information... More

terrible experience, intentionally they will make you to wait and go around without any significance in a hot and humid weather conditions, local bouncers (goondas ) all around, waste of money they will even try to extract money, by many sevas, totally insignificant kindly avoid this *unholy* place

The temple is a good example of south indian temple designs. The uniqueness of the temple is the golden touch that is given to the main shrine ( pure gold or not...cant say), but its beautiful. The prasad is also delicious.

We were the only foreigners in the temple and it was truly a unique experience. The temple is very clean and organized. You can't go in with any belongings and have to walk barefoot along the temple. It was amazing to be able witness firsthand such strong religious devotion. Great visit!

We take darshan by paying 250 rs of seva ticket for the Darshan. Systematic darshan is taken and feeling satisfied. You will be the best place to visit after taking darshan of tirupati balaji.

Temple with modern thinking of managing more people. Very big area maintained perfectly. A nice place to worship and relax with family. One bad this is they Dont allow mobile inside temple. Over all its a best temple for Goddess Palahniuk.
