If you visit at around 9;30 morning one can have Darshana of Abhishek's.this is said to wash away your sins. One can take a ticket inside the temple for any Sevastopol that they like to offer to God.

The temple is at a distance of 25 km from Mysore. We reached here in evening. Luckily there was no Que. So we have darshan with ease. This is an ancient and well-known temple of Lord Shiva. Do visit when you are at Mysore.
