  • The temple is really good. Kerala structured Temple. But what I didn't like the Purohits ( priest) ask you to come , give you flowers & ask for money. You will meet 3/4 priest like this,in front of different deities. There's no demand , you can give 20/50 rupees to each also. But they shouldn't ask like this, right? Pardon me, Not sure if it's the rituals there, but honorarium should be part of individual person's wish, it should not mandatory. We bought two coupons (30 rs each) to buy Prasad, but from counter the guy gave us only one packet. I repeated, we gave 2 coupons, but the counter person gestures( may be he doesn't know English) that I should receive only one packet. ????? Why ?? But I must say, some of the priests are really really good & kind hearted, they explained us & cleared out all our questions. Overall, do visit this temple if you go Chennai, but keep in mind above things.
  • Well maintained Kerala style temple. Systamatic performance of poojas for the Deitys. Silent is maintained there except during poojas are performed.
