  • Architecture is impressive. Worth visiting. Take care of following while visiting. 1.mobiles, bags, bottles, food are not allowed inside. Better keep in vehicle you take if u have one. 2.hotels are available but a bit expensive. 3.water is worth the most. 4.will not advice to strictly watch the exhibition. It is hectic, costly. 250 per adult(combo including water show). Water show 80per adult. 5.exhibition goes on for 2 hours making u wait in long queues. 6.ticket for exhibition ends at 5 pm. But water show is still sold. 7.Better visit in night as you won't miss light effects of temple n water show. Enjoyed my visit.
  • Great place to visit while being in Dheli! This temple is amazing, the architecture is so impressive, all those details in the interior, it was a very memorable experience. And there is some very special energy around the temple, incredible peacefulness, I could just sit there for hours and enjoy the silence. There are some good expositions as well. The only thing is that the exposition inside the temple somehow steals something from the real temple experience... now it's more like a museum. The light show in the evening made my day there pretty much perfect!
  • Very awesome place to spend your whole day. Starting with many places to see inside. Many inspiring short films and short films related to God . In the noon you can eat at the canteen which is hygienc and tasty food. Finally in evening the best laser show which is a never miss show.
  • Amazing architecture. Carvings are mind blowing. Exhibitions nice especially the boat ride, missed the water show due to time inconvenience. Better to visit during afternoon hours. Food courts is really very good.
  • Really great place, great architecture and detailed stone work. Well maintained and very neat and clean. Water Body is also well maintained. Only issue I found here is the food. I did not like the quality of food served here. Would never enter canteen whenever I will visit next.
