  • Crazily cool for photography of ancient Tamil Nadu. Very satisfying spiritual visit. Loved the pillars, ancient architecture to the core. A paradise for photographers,and a religious visit. Overall sceneric and highly religious visit....
  • Great place for Worshiping the Lord Perumal. Nice maintenance and the temple is vast and audio guides are available for the facilities of pilgrims. Renovation works are being carried out in few mandapams.
  • Temple is poorly minted. Beggers all around, no cleaness, It opens only after 5.30am but public gathering starts from 4am. There is no police protection.. Well constructed temple by the great kings but current management is poor..
  • Like the peaceful and calm atmosphere of the area surrounding the main temple!!!There are many things that can be learn't if you like learning history as the temple was built thousands of years ago!!!!
  • One of the best temples of Tamil Nadu. Very low cost food with high quality... Positive vibes all around.
