Being a world renowned temple , Darshan is allowed from 6:00 am to 7:45 pm on all days,with very short intermittent closures for Poojas of the Deity. There is a facility for faster/special darshan, for those in a hurry, with special tickets at a nominal amount of rupees ten. Generally it takes less than 30 minutes for Darshan with all devotees being Allowed into the Sanctum Sanctorum (Garbha Gruha).

However, Devotees are advised to keep sufficient extra time so that they can have a glimpse of the rare and ancient heritage in the Temple. Though there is no Dress code, being an ancient temple, devotees are advised to prefer traditional attire. Photography is allowed except in Sanctum Sanctorum.

Unlike Many Maha Vishnu Temples, Abhishekam (Similar to ThiruManjanam) is performed to the deity on daily basis (Like in Siva Temples) and devotees can opt for participation with a nominal ticket of rupees Hundred. It is performed in the early hours of the day (4:30 am - 6:00 am) and devotees can participate in person. Devotees can bring the materials on their own or request Temple Administration for the same at nominal Prices (Milk, Ghee, Curds, Honey, Sugar, Coconuts, Fruit Juices etc).

For those not able to be present, the Temple administration can arrange to perform the Abhishekham in their Name/Gotra Namam on any day of their choice at a nominal amount of Rs Hundred. There is a facility even for Saswata Abhishekam - i.e. performing Abhishekam in the name/Gotra Namam of the Devotee on any day of his/her choice every year permanently., with onetime payment of 2000.Please see the details on Aarjita Sewas in the following pages. Devotees can mail/write/approach the Temple Administration for the same.

Those who are unable to make prior arrangements but want to participate in person, may directly come to the Temple before 4:30 am on any day with or without the Materials, to participate in the Abhishekam. Though no assurance, Generally there is enough room for last minute entrants. Please view details on Arjitha Sewas below.
