It's our 2nd visit after 2017. Darshan in the evening was very convenient. Hardly any queue. Very energetic and vibrant place. Laddo prasad is very nice and pure. Lots of small vendor shops around... more »
Best to approach this temple by walk or by local transport. Finding parking for owner driven cars is tough in narrow lanes though there is space. Special darshan tickets are priced at Rs. 20/- .
