We Entered the temple from North Gate. When we entered there was a stunning view of temple SHIKHAR (tip) and an BIG ASIAN ELEPHANT in the courtyard. The surrounding are neat and clean, also footwear are not allowed inside the temple area. Provided is the free footwear stand, make use o it. there were pooja's and other offerings goining on in one of the madapams. The Main temple is of MEENAKSHI(PARVATI) and the other temple is of LORD SHIVA. But one thing to be noted only INDIANS are allowed into the main area temples where the holy idol can be seen and worshiped. All in all a must visit.
