This tempel is very touristic and there is nothing special about it. The surrounding is beautiful but that's about it.

Go early to avoid the hordes of tourists! The mouth of the cave was dressed for a Ceremony that was going on outside when I visited. So it was super busy and I didn't feel I could take pictures.

We spend round about 30 minutes here. It's a nice place but not too much to see. If you walk a little bit away from the temple you can see some small waterfall and nice park.
