Auspicious days crowd will be more here and marriges will happen inside and outside the premises. If you do archanai progithar will ask you to put money which is little embarrassing situation. for food near by saravana bhavan is there whish is costly and opposite to that one 69 years old hotel will be there where price is normal.
