A very special location, that you should enter with modesty and respect. Together with a local guide you will be better able to understand the importance of this place.

There is a lot of action around the temple..all types of shops, eateries, vendors, cultural Sabhas.But once you enter the precincts of the temple you are engulfed by a feeling of peace...right from the Selva Ganapathi temple to the Navagrahas. Definitely worth a visit.
