Visiting hours for this temple is in morning between 8am to 11am...and in the evening between 3pm to 8pm...entrance fees...well there are something which money can't buy (FOC)...
Located very near to Arjuna's Penance...it's being said here that people who wants to live in their "own house" should visit this temple...(Puja karwane ke liye kuch bhi!!)..the residing Deity is called "Sthalasayana Perumal". It refers Lord Vishnu who chose to recline on the spot...

The idol of lord Vishnu in a sleeping posture with 3 hands on floor and 4th one calling the devotees along with Pundarika Maharishi near Padam is an eye catching one. An ugly modern Agramantapam is being built by the trust I guess, which will actually bring down the attractiveness of this temple. I don't know why govt allows such things.

Most foreign tourists come to Mahabalipuram for the archaeological sites, but this temple in the middle of town should not be missed. I went in the early morning, when the temple was crowded with locals, and found the ritual activities going on in virtually every corner of the temple complex very interesting. An added bonus is that non-Hindus are allowed in, which is far from always the case in southern India.

One of the 108 Divya Desams, this is a temple of religious importance to Vaishnava Brahmins of the Hindu faith. The magnificence of the deity and the temple ... an amazing experience.
