We were privileged to be there at a time when two couples were celebrating their 60 years. As foreign visitors we were made very welcome. We also witnessed the cow darshan. A memorable experience. more »
Great place for lord Shiva worshippers. Big temple and various activities are done on daily basis. It has got good history. It's not visible from main road as it's away from main road. It's construction is magnificent. Evening time is best time for visit. This place is not overcrowded in normal days but definitely crowded on special days.
The sculptures and carvings are extraordinary. The minutest detail in the stone carvings make one awestruck about the craftsmanship of those days. A must visit for any one interested in our heritage. Makes me proud.
