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.
