“a beautiful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2011

A huge inspiring temple with shrines to everyone! You are allowed to walk around, do puja and sit under the enormous Banyan tree. The snake singers will sing a song for you with their beautiful one string instrument.

“wonderful old temple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2011

A great local fully working temple with plenty of photo opportunities (10rps to enter and 100rps to use a camera) but do look out for the temple elephant that is kept in a yard behind the temple and goes for a walk through the town every day.Bananas and all fruit and veg is welcomed by this lovely old elephant.
