  • One of the ancient and magnificent temple. Very divine with full of positive atmosphere. I can keep on explaining but one should visit for the experience.
  • Nice temple. But there was too much rush. Lot of agents around which will ask anything so bargain hard. If there is rush expected don't use personal car, you won't find place to park it.
