A Million Year Old Ancient Shrine of Lord Sri Maha Vishnu

DARSHAN, PUJAS etc

Nija Rupam of Sri Kurmanadha in Sanctum Sanctorum

Being a world renowned temple , Darshan is allowed from 6am to 8pm on all days,with short intermittent closures for Poojas of the Deity. There is a facility for faster/special darshan, for those in a hurry, with special tickets at a nominal amount of rupees ten. Generally it takes less than 30 minutes for Darshan with all devotees being allowed into the Sanctum Sanctorum (Garbha Gruha). However, Devotees are advised to keep sufficient extra time so that they can have a glimpse of the rare and ancient heritage in the Temple. Though there is no Dress code, being an ancient temple, devotees are advised to prefer traditional attire. Photography is allowed except in Sanctum Sanctorum.

Unlike Many Maha Vishnu Temples, Abhishekham is performed to the deity on daily basis (Like in Siva Temples) and devotees can opt for participation with a nominal ticket of rupees Hundred. It is performed in the early hours of the day (4.30am – 6am) and devotees can participate in person. Devotees can bring the materials on their own or request Temple Administration for the same at nominal Prices (Milk, Ghee, Curds, Honey, Sugar, Coconuts, Fruit Juices etc).For those not able to be present, the Temple administration arranges to perform the Abhishekham in their Gothra Namam on the day of their choice at a nominal amount of rupees Hundred. Devotees can write/approach the Temple Administration for the same. If unable to have prior confirmation, Devotees can also directly come to the Temple before 4.30am with/without the Materials to participate in the Abhisekham being performed. Generally there is enough room for last minute entrants. Please view details on Arjitha Sewas below.

Lord’s Kalyanam is also performed on regular basis. The ticket amount is rupees Five Hundred and Sixteen per couple.Generally, atleast a day’s prior notice is necessary for organising/rescheduling the Poojas.Those wanting to participate can write/ approach the Temple Administration. Please view details on Arjitha Sewas below.

Some of the main Festivals being celebrated in the Temple are the 3 day Dolotsavam (Falguna Paurnami – popularly known as Holi) , One day Annual Kalyanotsavam (Vaisakha Shudha Ekadasi) , One day Annual JanmaDinam (Kurma Jayanthi) Festival of Deity on Jyeshta Bahula Dwadasi, One day Festival on Mukkoti Ekadasi etc
