One can get a very good darshan of the radiant Goddess Kali... The temple complex houses 12 small Shiva temples and a Lakshmi Narayan temple. With beautiful... More

Its a temple, I know, I love visiting various temples, but this was a shock. The priests and touts wanted to make money by taking us around and that was the only thing happening. Priests take money from 50 INR to 3000 INR and take pilgrims inside based on the amount they pay. Heard them make statements like " you... More
