Great place to be here.. excellent irrespective of age.... Every visit gives peace of mind and take one step closure to supreme God.. Jai Bole Nath... Due to extreme weather conditions, the temple is open only between the end of April (Akshaya Tritriya) to Kartik Purnima (the autumn full moon, usually end of October).

And while the human heads as semi withered flowers were hunging around me, on the shoulders of tired asleep passengers, the bus was jouncing towards the Himalayas. The magnificence of nature and the Ganges in the distance while meeting lighter greenish Mandakini, carried the power of a completely unusual, beautiful and dangerous world. The highlight of my trip to Asia... More
