  • The serenity of this place is divine. The moment you enter the temple, you'll feel the positive vibes, calm and soothing environment. Try to visit during prayer times of temple and participate in the prayer. The mesmerizing sound of drum beating is mighty enough to heal your mind and soul. Peace and enlightenment shown by lord Buddha is being well lived here and can be felt as well. Priceless heritage and must visit place. India is great!
  • Truly calming and peaceful place to visit! One will definitely be enchanted and mesmerized in the beauty. Soothes the mind and soul! It is surrounded by lush green beauty and pretty flowers...well maintained. The monks keep chanting their prayers and even we can join them in there and play the hand instrument following their lead and chanting the mantra. It was a blissful moment... Will leave you enchanted.
