“subhash1234”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

great Hindu place to visit... its little interior place through old slim ways to reach the temple. aprox. 1 km from the road needs to be walked down to reach the temple. However if its monday or some special occassion then temple is mostly very cowded and long queue can be found. its well known temple of Lord shiva...crores of people visit annually to get blessings of lord shiva...
bolo Har har mahadev......

“Give it a try!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2012

We bought flowers and went into this busy temple. After watching for a while an older man helped me by showing me how to shove into the crowd so I could offer my flowers. It is definitely a different kind of worship experience than quiet contemplation in a church!
