Very calm, serene atmosphere. Great place for devotion and prayer. It is situated opposite to the beach and therefore evenings are wonderful

It's serene and peaceful. Not a big temple though. Located quite interior from ECR and parking is on the streets. The temple has a central Mandir and need to climb few stairs to reach the idol. The idol was quite different and majestic. The architecture differs from other Hindu temples what we have been used to. The Mandir is surrounded... More

This temple is situated on the East Coast Road, just before the Mayajaal cineplex and right after the toll plaza. Constructed right on the beach front of the ECR, the sight from the temple is a breathtaking one - the temple literally overlooks the ocean, and evokes thoughts of Dwarka (as in the mythology of Lord Krishna) The temple houses...
