Divine Temple, very old and quite peaceful and spiritual. We visited the temple on 5th Aug 2017, reached there around 4.30 PM and it took around 3 hours for us to have the divya darshan. Waiting in the queue was worth.

Considering the religious importance of the place, it should be much more developed. There is no proper parking, no accommodation facilities or hygiene maintained at the place. If you want to visit on the weekends, start early otherwise you will have to park the vehicle...More
