Very colorful and full of culture! It's a great place to wander around looking at the different gods and temples. It's best to go early because culturally, you must take off your shoes and the cement ground gets very hot!

I didn't even get to walk on the grounds but just driving passed and seeing the building was pretty interesting! At least it's one landmark I do remember, even if I didn't get much of an experience from it, it's easy on the eyes.

As its a small temple it won't take long to look around probably only take 30mins in total. It's interesting to see the different colours and intricate designs apparently all done by hand. Would have liked a guide to take us along and give more information. Be respectful and cover up ladies - they do have scarves and sulus to... More

When we went there, there was an annual prayer going on. They provided food all the time. It was fairly well organised and the committee and donors of food need to be praised for that.

Had a lovely guide with lots of information. Make sure you cover up (they have scarves/wraps for you to borrow there) and take your shoes off - also no cameras allowed inside. Lovely to look around - won't take more than half an hour/40mins as it's quite a small temple.

It's worth a visit if your in Nandi town, however I wouldn't go out my way to visit. Make sure you wear something long. It's a pretty temple it would have been nicer if there was a guided tour..

Had to visist temple. Serene surroundings gave time for some quiet meditation. Word to travellers (men), refrain from wearing 3/4 pants. The service desk was kind to provide me with a 'lungi' for the duration of our visit.

We spent half an hour walking around the temple and found it really interesting. There didn't seem to be any particular tours or other activities for visitors but we enjoyed it anyway. Make sure you wear a long skirt/long pants so that your legs are covered.

This was a sort of short stop over for us on the way to the Valley of the sleeping giant, anyway glad i had a look at it, very colourful, but as you need to be respectful inside the temple grounds you need to take all foot wear off at the front, You soon find yourself walking very fast from...
