Temple is always crowded since this temple is one of the main temples of south India. This is the only temple where we can see Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva together. Very powerful temple.

A splendid example of an authentic Hindu temple. The stone carvings and mouldings are on a scale which beggars belief. Men are required to remove their shirts on admission to the temple
