Small place very cute Ganesh, close to ashram too. Elephant dharshan is also attractive. very disciplined no extra stuff. must visit in the morning. parking is the problem. Old temple came to know the entry for the kumbabhishakam for 1000/- but still no place to enter the temple

The temple is just off the market , well maintained , if crowded.

Lakshmi the elephant does a great job blessing worshippers, nearly passing all contributions to her mahout ho waits patiently beside her.

I visited this temple many times during my stay in Pondicherry. I particularly like Genesha temples and here the elephant was the great attraction. There were always many devotees in the temple and it had a wonderful atmosphere
