A very small and inconspicuos temple which has a major following with most believing that one's wish will be granted if one makes a certain number of Parikramas around the sanctum sanctorium.

Energy at this place drive you to visit it once more. The best time to visit this temple is early morning, as early as 6 am and if possible on weekdays only. Weekends, number of devotees here are in thousands.

This temple is widely known as Visa God. Good things about this temple are, there is no hundi and no special privilege for VIPs. It would be filled with many devotees from early morning. Devotees doing pradakshina need to be very careful and it is advised to follow instructions of temple priests.

Brilliant as the trust and faith of devotees is. Disliked to see 3 Rs mineral water bottle sold at 23 and 24 Rs. Foreigners are best looted here leave about the natives and tourists. Visitors need be very careful during pradakshinas (taking rounds around temple), possibility of stampede. Adhere to voiced advices and suggestions from temple staff.
