There was a long queue for the darshan, but the management is quite good and co-operative. For people who have genuine issues like some disability or senior citizens, the ones who could not stand for long in a queue, could skip the queue and are allowed to go inside, by taking permission/letter from the office there.
For gents - U have to buy dhoti from there Rs60/ each. and u can wrap that dhoti over your pant/short/jeans. tshirt or shirt is not allowed. you have to take off t shirt or shirt and go bare.
For ladies, best is saree, and if not saree, wear churidar or anything long and over that again you have to wrap around the dhoti.
The timings were:
Morning: 3.30 am to 12 pm
Evening: 5 pm to 7.20 pm
Later we checked in, in a hotel near to the airport, as we had our flight for Mumbai, the next day. The nearest beach was Shanghumukham Beach, which was clean and nice. We had the last authentic south Indian dinner, near the beach and were not too happy about ending the trip, but ended it at a happy note, with the hope of a next beautiful trip soon. Next morning we boarded our flight and said goodbye to Kerala and Tamil Nadu.
