Its one of the best Vishnu temples I have seen. And very popular, so expect slightly longer queues. Darshan starts with Goddess Komalavalli and then Lord Vishu as Sarangapani in a sleeping posture. The sight is divine.

This is a very nice Lord Vishnu temple right next to Adi Kumbeswar temple. I have visited during evening and they perform special puja around 6 PM. There was little crowd so darshan was very great.
