Placed in a remote place, it's better to travel in your own vehicle. No hotels or eateries available. Better to carry your own food. The temple is cleanly maintained. Every board is written only in regional language and doesnt serve people who isn't from that region. Kumbhakonam is very close and gives you ample options of pilgrimage.
Huge temple with beautiful sculpture. Very well maintained. Went on a Sunday and there was no rush. Peaceful darshan
