Nice temple in the heart of the city

Quite a good place, choose the odd time to go and it will be less crowded. Bang in the middle of the city, now accessible even by metro!

Wonderful temple - in the heart of the city - which is now accessible through Metro as well . Keep a track of the entrance where you leave your foot wear. This temple is also famous for instant marriages :)

Very nice temple with lot of space inside to sit peacefully and do meditation. On special days and weekends there will be huge crowd. To have a nice Darshan and to spend some time sitting in the temple it is highly recommended to visit on a normal week day.
