“Calm Place”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Visited in Morning Today at around 7.30. Not too crowded. Got a good darshan of Lord Muruga and Ganesha. Steps are also few, so one can easily reach the Inner Sanctum. Special Ticket facility is available, but i dont feel anyone will need it, as normal facility also gives good view of Lord presiding inside Inner Sanctum.

“Good one”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We visit this temple every year as its our family's temple abode.Every puja.abhishekam was great, but I found the priests becoming very commercial and greedy year by year.They fix one rate before the pujas and at the end haggle for more,which makes the whole experience sour.
Just go on a non auspicious day with a bunch of flowers as offering and pray to your heart's content in your own unique way.Thats the only way to enjoy the temple and the GOD.
