This place is one of the wonders of ancient history. Very peaceful and best for relaxation on weekdays and on winters. Very good place to spend leisure time. Very good place of Indian history and rich Indian culture.This place Carries a unique style of people remembrance about their knowledge and wisdom thousands of years back. This is a living monument and historical representation even after so many natural calamities stands tall.
Momentous. But, sad that the government has implemented entry fee system that costs too much for the site. Located right next to the sea, the place provides you with a sense of calm and peace. Visit here in the evening (before 6,which is the maximum visiting time alloted by the authority). The site is well maintained.
