We didn't get in the temple, we just saw it from the outside. Like in many other temples in India, you're asked to leave all your possessions outside, including cellphones and cameras. From the outside, it doesn't look too impressive.

On of the finest temple of lord vishnu. The statue seems to be live and it gives a feel of sheer pleasure. Dhoti is compulsory for men and should either wear saree or had to put on dhoti over salwar suit.
