Overwhelmingly large. Nicely located on the beach. Inside is so peaceful and powerful at the same time. Impressed. Paid 250Rs to skip the line. Still, it took about 20 minutes to see the idol. Otherwise, I don’t know how much longer it took.

Wonderful place to have a peace of mind. Everything is good over there, I was not happy to see the money minded people in and around the temple.

We had a quick temple visit in April'18 as part of our annual visit. We had arranged for Abhishegam. Though it is crowded, leaving all these obstacles, the abhishegam was performed well and we could enjoy the beauty of all abhishegams (milk to vibhuthi)
