  • This temple situated at the Riverside has a very calming effect. Though like any other other temple its crowded and dirty. But the peaceful river and small space at the top doesn't let it be too noisy. We sat beside river with our feet in not so deep water. It was cold but yet refreshing.
  • A famous Devi temple in the midstream of Kosi river with wonderful scenic beauty. It attracts lots of devotees as well as tourists who can enjoy bathing in the knee-deep crystal clear water of the river while enjoying the pious view of the temple.
  • Nice temple on a nice location. Beautiful and unique place. This temple is situated in the middle of Kosi river on top of a 100 ft high small hill. There are covered stairs to reach the temple. A bridge has been made by government on the river to approach temple area.
  • Great temple , have an amazing history. A big peace of rock on which the temple was built a long time ago. Great location , near by river.
  • Hindu Religious place. Temple. Very peaceful atmosphere. Blended with nature. Must visit.
