"A very old ancient but popular Lord Siva temple. Visit the temple between 4.30p and 6.00p for a comfortable free darshan, no crowd, no pushing around, unless it is a festival or special day. There is a Lord Nataraj (dancing Lord Siva) shrine in the 2nd corridor where the samadhi (tomb) of Yoga guru Pathanjali is also located. Meditating at this calm and quiet place even for 5 mins is a wonderful experience; one has to experience it than just reading about it.. Temple of Lord Parvadhavardhini, the God's consort is another beautiful temple adjacent to Lord Siva temple. The 3rd corridor of this temple is world famous for its architectural aspect; the zero-error perfection in its construction/pillar alignment without modern equipments several 100 years ago speaks volumes about itself. It is generally advised to complete all the rituals by noon. The roads around the temple and seashore area near the temple are usually smelly due to crowd, ritual processes performed throughout the day. Just bear with it."
