  • Its calm place and beautiful place..those days it was hard to go , now road is very good.. all the places clear with jungle.. white temple , there is big car park..
  • Ancient temple in the jungle which is supposedly protected by herds of wild elephants. The road is now sealed to the temple but I stopped around midday because there was a wild elephant beside the road. I only saw the temple but apparently there are lots of ancient ruins around the temple.
