A must visit place. Such is the aura of the place that you are surrounded by a very positive and spiritual feeling as you step into the temple. Covering your head is a must here.

Planing a visit to northern territory will be better you will be able to see Taj Mahal, Golden temple, Rajasthan And Of course,... More
