Diety is Lord Sreekrishna, It is in Alappuzha Dist, 20 mins journey from Alappuzha Town. One must take a token for the Palpayasam, which is world famous. Any time in morning or in evening you can visit the temple

A large temple with quintessential Kerala architecture and hassle free darshan of the Lord. Had the good fortune of having the famed Paal Payasam at noon time. So delicious and filling. I now know what nectar is.
