  • Temple is fantastic..divine.. the queue is diverted and managed well. The approaching road is pathetic. overflowing dustbins, cows on the road, fruit vendors make the road so narrow that one has to think twice before entering the road.on top of it there is no parking available.you rely on the flower vendor or the so called parking security who are not to be seen once you come out of the temple.poor management of parking and cleanliness.no maintenance of the temple premise.
