Temple timings in the morning are 4:45am to 12:30pm in the morning and again they will open in the evening. But they will pause dharshan after 12pm for around 30 minutes to perform harathi and abhishekam. Please make a note of it. You need to struggle a little bit to park on the street as it is a busy street

Temple has nice paintings

A traditional south Indian lord Ganesha temple. Everyday huge people visit here. One of the famous tourist attraction in Puducherry. Due to crowded  we had to wait approximately 10 minutes in queue. The place is really divotional place. There are not any seperate parking area. You have keep it beside road. We purchased puja thali which was reasonable. A elephant standing outside of temple whose we had gaves banana to eat but elephant keeper told us don't give food to elephant. Actually he wants money only.

The temple closes at 01:00 PM but fortunately it was open for a little late. We could manage to get the darshan. They have the shoe stand on chargeable basis and prasad distribution in the afternoon. Not much crowded and very neat. Must visit place in Pondy closer to Arvindo Ashram and beach road.

Beautiful, colorful temple. This temple is dedicated to Ganesha. Be prepared to take off your shoes and be in close proximity with others, as the temple does get crowded. No photos or cell phones are allowed inside, as it’s a place of worship. The downside is that since this is a popular tourist attraction, the entrance is crowded with people begging for money and selling trinkets. It was overwhelming trying to navigate through the crowd and the sea of beggars and street vendors simultaneously.

This is a magnificent temple! It is an ancient temple that predates even the presence of French rule in Puducherry. Lord Ganesha is the main deity of the Mankula Vinayagar Temple. The presiding deity of the temple is seated on a Golden Chariot made from teak wood and adorned with gold rings, creating an intricate design on the chariot. 7.5 kilograms of gold are used to make the chariot In addition to Ganesha, the temple also houses the idols of several other important gods and goddesses such as Shri Krishna, Muruga, Shiva, Parvati, and many others. This temple is known for its beautiful wall paintings of Hindu mythological Gods and Goddesses. This temple is clean and well maintained. Other than that, there is also an elephant Lakshmi that blesses people with her trunk every day from 4:00 PM until 8:00 PM in the evening. . As we travel through Tamil Nadu, this is our first stop as we travel south. No entry fee is charged for visitors to visit this temple. Timings for the temple are: 5:45 am - 12:30 pm and 4:00 pm - 9:30 pm
