The temple was built in the 13th century and has undergone renovation multiple times. I was 15 minutes earlier to the Pal-Payasam distribution and the first thing I did was to get a token for it. At 12 after Naivedyam the piping hot payasam was distributed in sealed containers in half and one-liter portions. The lake beside the temple was exactly how I had imagined it to be. Soaking feet in the cold water of the lake was refreshing in that scorching heat. I somehow managed to get a spoon and took a heavenly sip of Payasam, yes! it was worth the visit.
