  • Such a beautiful temple and so huge with lots of open space too. Been there with my family in the morning of 11th Oct. I was astounded by the beauty of this place and the main entrance just enthralled me a lot. Such a grandeur and still standing tall with all the old charm and beauty. I can't describe much about this beautiful place as I'm still lost with words to describe about this place as my tounge is still tied by the beauty. I.wish I could stay there forever and just enjoy the beauty bit by bit. Such a spectacular and magnificent temple for sure.
