Early morning Mangala Aarti (special ticket required) allows devotees not only to witness darshan but also to touch the Sivalinggam (the '12th' JyothiLingga - which devotees believe equals to have touched all the 12 JyothiLingga). A very powerful and beautiful darshan indeed. Cant help the feeling of peace.
Just bring ur footware in till pass the initial security check in alley (via gate no1), past that before 2nd securi check, theres plenty of empty shop carts to the left where you can place footwear safely as by the time darshan was over and even took our time touring the inner temples slowly, they were still empty n our footwears safe for free :-)
A special place mostly for devotees around the world as the focus tends to be the ShivLingga which is the main purpose why devotees flock there, others definitely will be distracted by surrounding environment/ people... so... there you go...
