उपास्य पश्चिमां सन्ध्यां सहभ्रात्रा यथाविधि । प्रविवेशाश्रमपदं तमृषिं सोभ्यवादयत् ॥

श्रीमद्वाल्मीकिरामायणे अरण्यकाण्डे एकादशस्सर्गः (७०व श्लोकमु)

This shloka clarifies that RamaLakshmanas performed Sandhyavandanam in time and after that only entered the sacred ashram of the brother of Agastya.

Hence we must also perform Sandhyavandana-adi-ahnikas in time before entering auspicious places like teertha-kshetrams (if Upanayanam has been performed).
