I went for puja at Onam and many believers were happy to share their knowledge about the rituals. You can enter from the back, if you want to avoid the steep stairs, but remember to walk clockwise when in the temple!

The Vishnu Temple is one of the several building that you will find on the premises that also host the old Janardhana Swami Temple. hence, it is not necessarily a sight of its own but one building to appreciate along with the others.

Whilst you can't go into the inner sanctum unless you're a Hindu, the complex is totally worth a visit.
