No bags, shoes or electronic devices allowed, but once inside it was very peaceful. Watch out for the pigeon pooh! Restful and charming by the sea (but its not old!)

This is very good temple. This is attached to sea, so you can actually enjoy that too. No mobile phone, shorts, camera allowed. But they do provide lockers if you are carrying those.
