an ancient temple with a huge prahara. it takes one a good 30-45 mins to see the whole temple. it is well kept and clean. the statue of Lord Hanuman is huge. the speciality of this temple is that one can find the dieties of Brhama, Vishnu and Mahaeswara in the same sanctum sanctoram. definetly worth a visit
