the architecture is different from other places and has indeed a secular outside look to it. Reminded me of Buddhist influence. So, very different in structure, it must be seen

No offence to anyone but this is a normal place of worship for the locals. True, they believe that praying here answers prayers etc but as a tourist location, i didnt find anything out of the ordinary.
