  • Nice place to visit. Since the city has been named after this goddess, one should definitely visit this place. For the travellers I'm mentioning the temple timings:The temple is open daily from 6 a.m to 10 am, 12 pm to 1 pm and 4 pm to 8 pm.
  • Great spiritual atmosphere of this place. I love the artworks on the walls of this beautiful temple and also on the tombstone. This is a really beautiful temple. The hard work of the artisans fascinates me more and more.
  • Very old temple. Nice place to spend a peaceful evening.
  • A temple of historical significance to the Mangalore city.(Some photos here are not related to this particular temple and need editing in order to prevent confusion among the tourists)
  • Place of peace. Beautiful goddess. Mangala devi Goddess is from where this city got its name.
