Good attraction near Karla caves. You need to trek up for about one hour to reach this place. But natural beauty of the surroundings makes the effort worthwhile.

This temple is good and neatly managed. Climbing to the temple is not that difficult. Temple is good. One can see nearby Buddha caves too.

Its located at a very nice place. Unfortunately you will find a lot of drunk people when you visit there. Guess thats how it has been historically. But very nice location, the view is beautiful and so is the temple
