I cannot find the temple I am looking for. What do I do ?
We have put in our best effort to include all major temples. If you cannot find your temple please email us at email@example.com
and we will be more than happy to include it. Another thing to keep in mind while searching for temples is that we have omitted terms like 'Sree', 'Arulmigu' etc before the temple name to facilitate searching. Therefore if you want to look up Kapaleeswar temple in Mylapore, search by the letter 'K' Kapaleeswarar temple and not 'A' Arulmigu Kapaleeswarar temple.
