A lovely temple approached via an open courtyard with a tower and awe inspiring sculptures on the whole facade and columns. Being a "working" place of worship, it has a certain soul to it. One can easily spend an hour here. Must visit.

Located in the busy city, but actually there were no lines. The city is very proud of this Temple and they should be.
