“Unless very pious, its not worth it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

It is a long journey from Rishikesh(over 70 kms). It also involves a good deal of walk from the car parking lot. The approach to the temple is cumbersome. Temple entrance is poorly organized. Actually unless one is aware of it, the deity could be missed as there is no temple type entrance etc.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Well the travel was quite long and the experience was not at all good.There is nothing much in the temple which is out of the ordinary.Pandits push you around.

A very well organized and very devotional Ganga Aarti - definitely worth visiting on a trip to Rishikesh!

“overrated !!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

it is a good place to visit if you are on a religious trip but you can give it a miss if you are a general traveler. there are two ways for going there, one is through the road and the other one is a trekkers route. the trek route will take 4-5 hours to reach the temple and is quite good.
