I visited this temple in evening time when it was going to be Aarti. Aarti is quite long & contains a multi-step process. We had a very satisfactory Darshan of Maa Ambe.

The temple is right by the banks of Tapi river and with awesome views. It's beautifully decorated and very crowded at some time. But it''s still a nice place and accessible by public transit. It's walkable distance from the main road.

It's a nice place. Should visit atleast once. Full facilities are available even for lodging and fooding. And the system reflects the image of old india. And the good practices which are disappearing day by day.
