This place is conveniently located, modern and clean. For the amount I paid for an A/C room with TV, I considered it very good value The owner, Sunil, was very friendly and I had a very pleasant stay, occupying a spacious room at the back overlooking paddy fields.

The owner is a very honest spiritual person, the rooms simple but clean, in very convenient walking distance to the main temples. I was advised how to visit other places concerning my budget...

It turned out that the festival was over a week ago. When returning an hour...

It´s on the main road but not too noisy and the rooms look out onto the paddy fields behind. It´s a short 10 minute walk to the Temple. Everything you need is provided here including...
