For a European, Hindu temples take some getting used to. We went through the temple with a local guide. That was very informative. One could study the gopuram with its many colorful figures for hours. Overall the atmosphere was relaxed. It goes without saying that one should be dressed appropriately and probably for every corner of the world.
Very well managed, clean & deeply rooted to culture representation by this temple. Daily puja with all rituals & process. Impressed with this temple at this foreign country.
