Their are other hotels and restaurants in the vicinity where you stay; but if you are looking for cheep rooms with good facilities then I suggest you to contact this office and they help you in booking of rooms.

Road towards temple

The Road which leads to the temple is awesome; the whole stretch is decorated with plants and trees on both sides. It gives you the atmosphere of “PRAYER”

It also has a small deer park on one side of the road near the temple.

Temple's Main Prahara Gopuram

The dharshan is a sacred place; to seek the dharshan of “Raghavendra Swami” the gents should go bear body with minimal clothes.  No Shirts or banians are allowed. While you stand in the queue, announcement would be made about this rule and it needs to be followed religiously. If you are not following the rule then you would not be allowed inside swami’s premises.

These sava tickets can be bought from any one of two seva counters, present outside & inside the temple. All devotees who have purchased the seva tickets should assemble in a big hall which seems to be newly build.

Last years Hanuman's pair of shoe.

Every year in this temple new pair of shoes will be offered to Hanuman. But at the end of the year, these shoes will get worn out as if it was used by Hanuman and people here believe the same.


What ever be the religion or it may be any God you worship, have faith in them.
Lets all visit this place and get the blessings of Shri Raghavendra Swami.
