Vishnu Circumambulation – How many times should we go around Hindu God Vishnu in Temple?

How many times should a devotee go around Vishnu murti in a Hindu temple? Now this is a perplexing question as there are no written rules. And the number of times people go around varies from region to region. Circumambulation, or simply going around, of deity in the sanctum sanctorum is an important part of temple visit.
But as per majority of pandits, astrologers and pujaris, one should go around Vishnu in a temple four times.
Four circumambulations should be made in a GaneshTemple.
But there are people who do 2 or 6 or 8. This is also permitted in many regions.
But one should never do 1 or 3 or 5 circumambulation around Vishnu.
