  • I have heard of this temple online and also many people suggested as this temple will be opened once in 40 years. So i have planned to go with family. We reached the temple premises around 1 PM and the arrangements were too bad and they let the visitors in the hot sun with no sandals also. It was sunny and we have to walk for around 1 km with no sandals on the tar road. After that they were holding for every 50 metres and it took 8 hours to visit the God. Other than that everything was good.
  • Very old and historic temple. Car entry towards temple was not easy and had to park far away from temple. Inside temple it was very easy in and out. Priests are friendly and helpful.
