Had a nice darshan, attended temple poojas, and also attended the pooja by His Holiness Sankaracharya of the Sringeri Sharada Peetham at Narasimha vanam. Altogether a divine experience.

Had a peaceful time. The temple had a divine aura. A little stream was flowing nearby and the view was perfect for the tired, restless heart.

Crazy rush on Sundays. Avoid visiting on public holidays and Sundays. Closed from 2-5pm. The afternoon lunch is supposed to be amazing, missed it though.
