  • A typical South Indian temple, very calm and peaceful. Pretty decent food court.
  • I love visiting Malibu temple . After the visit I usually sit for sometime outside the temple. It's calm and neatly kept. Sundays and holidays ,good crowd in the morning hours, not that many in the evening. After many visits, once I decided to take lunch served there and I loved it. If you prefer small quantity with not many varieties south India lunch, then it's for you . Its a good heavy lunch( 3$ per box) for 1 or 2.
  • It's a very good temple with almost all the hindu Gods. Do check it out when you have time. Very peaceful place.
  • All the Swamis are good and the poojas are excellent and performed by Swamis with great Devotion unlike at other Temples where they perform in a hurry.
  • Beautiful temple as well location. Remind me that of Tirupati Balaji temple.
