It is a famous temple in the heart of the city. It is a vinayaka temple. Presently renovation work is going in based on a devaprasnam conducted last year.

Refurbishment is taking place in full swing. Because of this pooja times are crowded. Still the arthi performed are really delightful to attend.

It is a must to visit this holy temple if one plans to visit Sri Padmanabha temple or Sri Varaham temple. Reciting the Lambodhara Gayatri at this temple confers peace and happiness.

ancient temple now started renovation work. Now the idols are kept in Balalayam, a temporary arrangement to offer daily poojas. The main temple is now under construction.
