HolidayIQ Reviewer Kiran Bavimani says, “Simply Divine! (Homa) Had been to a homa on a no moon day. Had been there from Bangalore and there are trains with perfect timings. Had a quick shower and took a local bus to this location) and you need to be in touch with the POC in the temple to get it done (not easy as there is a lady who sometimes picks the phone and is fluent in english, others seem to be just playing with you).. For one ticket, 4 people are allowed. Plan to visit other temples before the Homa (before 8 am). After this Homa, reach home without visiting any other temples and do not take Bath again that day. You may take Ghee and Chillies to offer during the Homa but not mandated.” Read Full Review
