  • Very close to the beach. The temple opens at 6 and closes at 12 and then open up at 16 and close to 20. The classic Hindu temple, colorful. Photos can make them only externally. Popular with locals, who remain waiting to be received by the holy man.

  • Very old and beautiful temple. Its a Vishnu temple. Sculptures of parth of sri krishna. It's a one of the divya desam in 108. Please must visited the Temple. In all day's many crowd in the Temple. If very easy to u reached the Temple train and bus are your own vehicles. This temple is attached the mahabharatham story. இது 108 திவ்ய தேசங்களில் ஒரு கோவில் ஆகும். மிகவும் புராதான கோவில் பெருமை வாய்ந்த கோவில். பார்த்த சாரதி கோவில். இந்த கோவிலில்பார்த்த சாரதியின் முகத்தில் மீசை இருக்கும் . இது எந்த கோவிலிலும் இல்லாத ஒன்று
  • Historic Lord Vishnu temple and a must visit. Approaching roads are narrow. The architecture of the temple depicts the skill of ancestors. Huge temple complex with multiple small temples with in. Will be crowded on all festive occasions. Temple staff are ok not so cooperative. Plan our visit and you can have a pleasant experience......
  • This is a Hindu Lord Krishna Temple and one of the most important and famous Divya desam temple. This temple is listed among 108 VAISHNAVA DIVYA DESA TEMPLES. MUST VISIT. Before visiting Tirumala Tirupathy one must visit this temple and seek blessings of Lord Parthasarthy and it is the tradition from good old times. இது ஒரு பிரபல இந்து கோயில். 108 வைணவ த்வுய தேச தலங்களில் ஓன்று. ஆழ்வார்களால் மங்களாசாசனம் செய்யப்பட்ட ஆலயம். திருப்பதி-திருமலையானை தரிசிக்கும் முன் இக்கோயிலுக்கு விஜயம் செய்து செல்ல வேண்டும் என்பது ஐதீகம்.
