Our favourite place in Delhi, you can’t take photos so it’s such an amazing surprise when you get there. It’s a must see- the only way I can describe it is a modern day Siem Reap

Amazing place to visit with your family. Must take children along. A complete full day trip ending with the evening musical fountain that should not be missed. A full 5 on 5 place..

great place to find peace. the swami Narayan show is really good as it helps you to clear your mind. Leave your mobile phones and cameras as it is not allowed and just try to enjoy it as its meant to be.

Wow, what an amazing place with incredible detail applied to the temple. Every aspect has intricate detailed carving. We arrived at 6 into a mad rush to enter before 6:30 so remember this!! Worth a good look round. No shoes allowed in the temple
