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.

A Hindu temple of epic proportions I am reckoning from someone who is foreign to this religion and these temples.  The colours and intricacy in the statues is an amazing sight to behold.  There is something to look at in every direction from statues and...More
