Located on the highest point in this area, wonderful view, the temple is very old, the strucutre seems to be affected by the earthquakes, the kali temple is very much a place to pay a visit.

The 1000 steps walk to the Kali Temple is definitely worth it. It only takes about 30 minutes to the top and there are little shrines along the way. The steps are in great condition, but the tower at the Kali temple is still under...More
