  • Beautiful temple of Lord Shiva set in a a corner. The route to this temple is scenic and the views from the temple is another nature's beauty. Its set in the middle of nature. When you walk down the stairs from the temple towards the stream - it's another experience. Crystal clear cold water flowing form the ranges. An experience worth taking.
  • Beautiful and peaceful place. One can enjoy taking a bath in the water stream running along side the temple. There is a wooden plank burning from past 600 years. There are many small temples within the premises of the main temple. Parking facility available.
