Built in 1855 by Tamil labourers, the temple has a South Indian architectural style. The gopuram or tower, a common element in South Indian temple architecture, was built at a height so that it can be seen from a distance.

We visited when Deepvali was being celebrated. An amazing spectacle. The Temple itself is so ornate and beautiful. But I would suggest visiting when there is not any celebrations happening and you can appreciate it fully.

Hi, We were there as early as 7 AM. They open pretty early, so you can come there anytime of the day. I am not really sure if they have held any celebrations and stuff there tho'.
