  • The architecture and environment are wonderful. Temple management should look into managing temple better especially controlling the crowds.
  • One of the biggest perumal which has rich historic value. Must visit. One day is not enough if you visit all the places of temple.
  • Everything is good.but special dharson tickets price range is RS 50 and Rs250 only.The Ramanujam temple here.food is available here.
  • best posture of lord vishnu in the entire world. i never miss the daily morning viswaroopa darshan
  • One needs to wait in a long queue.. Worth waiting.must visit in life time and a feast to a keen observer of architecture. Also visit Thiruvanaika temple located in the same island.
