At this temple, a pair of nine-feet tall Dwarapalakas (demigod gatekeepers) flank the Rajagopuram entrance tower, which features the Chola style of architecture.

I've been going to this temple for many years now on a daily basis at 6am in the morning. Such a dedicated team of priest who lovingly does all your prayer request to the Deities!. Lord Ganesha is the most awe-some-neessss!!!

Visited this temple whilst exploring Katong. Despite its tranquillity, it is still very much a working temple. It was very clean and tidy - definitely worth a visit !

Clean temple with boards displaying the names of deities are very good. Sale of coconuts&other pooja things are being done in efficient way. Connectivity from other parts of this temple can still be increased.
