It's a very beautiful place to visit with an amazing design. Just don't pay the 1200 rupees to get inside, definitely not worth the money to pay since the beauty is basically outside.

We nearly passed here and it was such an amazing sight I asked to stop! We didn’t have time to go inside but the exterior is beautifully ornate and definitely worth seeing!

I arrived as this spectacular temple and there was a festival on so foreigners were not allowed into the temple. Still there was a lot to see outside. The main "spire" is quite magnificently carved as it the smaller one. However, what I really liked...More
