  • Small temple at garjia. You can reach parking by Car. From there there are few stairs to reach temple. River look pristine. Water look refreshing but you can't dip as per instructions of forest temple  more »
  • Peaceful place.. In middle of a river. Very old n famous temple.. A famous bridge nearby.. This place is just 4km away from museum. So can visit both.
  • Nice scenery and religious place. Beautiful view from this temple. You can't resist stopping for scenic view and enjoying the flow of river. Temple is quite old and it has little more stairs so people with knee problem should take care. You get wonderful feeling when you reach at the top.
