  • Excellent place , lots to know about our Hindu culture n tradition.. sculptures are really unique with precision... leaves one wondering as to how such postures could b etched on stones..
  • One of the very old temple in India. One must visit here to find out the architecture that were used then. Very calm but the priest are money minded. But just ignore them and feel the place.
