A very beautiful temple situated on top of the hill. Designs are so unique. No public transport going there. You have to take a taxi or use uber or grab to get there.

Not easy for wheelchairs. To reach the big hall you need to go up stairs. I didn't see any lifts so I would say not very good for wheelchair users.
