Ramnathswamy temple is one of the 'chardhams' of hindu pilgrimage system. Must visit this place take darshan of Sri Ramnathswamy and offer pranam/pooja etc according to your test. Go early in the morning or late afternoon..check open / close time in temple official website. Closely watch the temple architecture..it is so big and beautiful.
