A place where a great saint had done his sadhana and found the living Mother Goddess in the stone image. This place is imbued with peace and purity. One can visit for the unique architecture of the temple.

Be very careful of the scam artists posing as holy men. They wait for tourists so they can take you into the temple and try and scam money out of you. Absolute outrage! They prey on people's fears and insecurities.
