  • Undoubtedly pleasant weather#eternal peace#harmony#devotional#pattern for how you want to feel in your life. The temple is situated on the top of a mountain and it is around 2km trek from the foot of the mountain. There is a good pathway built so the climb is not very difficult. Moreover, there are horses available which can be availed to reach the temple. Do not miss the visit just because of the steep climb because the view from the top should not be missed. The temple itself is very powerful, the energy can be felt!
  • The most beautiful place I have ever been to. Sometimes clouds are beneath you and sometimes you are inside the clouds. Best time to do photography here is starting from 4:00PM till the sun down. Here are some pictures I took there.
