  • Amazing, peaceful temple. You can feel presence of God here. It's so awesome. Must visit and stay time. Q is less and takes little time. Ample parking and hotels nearby.
  • Beautiful Temple.... It's known for its own story of Kanakdas who believed to be a great devotee. He was not allowed to go inside Temple so Krishna Idol itself has turned towards him to give him blessings. One must visit to this Temple.
