Ferry cost 34 rupees, memorial entry ticket 20 rupees...

The temple is awesome otherwise..with lots of detailed stone-work. The views... More

A very nice and beautiful place.though ferries are little bit disorganised.life jacket provided but are not made compulsory.nobody bothered to check even.at mmemorial it was awesome weather.Wear long dresses or something tight below because wind pressure is very high.with little effort from government place could be really very very good attraction.
