  • 1st time i went to this place about 13 years ago that time people's are doing worship from the bottom of their heart and all temple authority members are very helpful but now a days its totally commercial everyone is here for finding a way by which they can earn money and so many useless rules they are putting on all the people who came for visiting instead of making stronger and more securing the places by putting new technology.... Though sky walk is the greatest innovation by West Bengal government which are very useful and helpful for so many people ...
