  • Chitai Golu dev temple a place to visit if one seeking for peace. Here you can see how people are attached to God with thousands of letters, there wishes hanging all over the place, lakhs of bells hanging showing devotion of people in the lord. Place is nice and clean with few steps. Temple is calm and not much rush. You can sit and meditate. A place worthy to visit.
  • A very beautiful and peaceful place. Thousands of bells hang all over the temple. It is said that whatever wish you have you should write it on a piece of paper and tie it on the walls of the temple the wish is heard. One can feel a peace of mind. But beware of the monkeys, as there are a lot of monkeys around the place and they may snatch the food items.
