“Holy place!”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

I managed to get inside and made a 15 minutes meditation at the backyard. It's a really strong place with a very suttle spiritual vibe.

“Nice Temple but an abbusive shoe keeper !!”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

I enjoy the temple and it's architecture, it is quite worth visiting this temple.

But one WARNING!!, beware of the abusive shoe keeper downside. If you are a foreigner he expect you to pay 20 Rs while the real rate is only 1 rupee and if you are not ready for that you will get to hear a sequence of all possible abusive words that come to his mouth.
