  • One of the best managed public attraction places. In fact right from the entry till you exit the premises it’s managed so well, from parking, queues for tickets and post the tickets seating arrangements for getting into the cable cars and above all the friendly staff to look after each one of you. Best thing is there is no plastics anywhere in the shops or the cafeteria at the premises at the top or the bottom at the valley, no disposable cups or bottles. The sculpture and the premises are maintained very well and the once the 6D theatre is operational there will be better rush here and experience for tourists. The sculpture is amazing and the feast that it has been under construction for a long time is new to me. Overall the experience is really good with the chilled lime water and snacks served at the top of the hill a good day spent for the family.
  • Fantastic sculpture carved out of rock. It's worth seeing. The view from the top... Wow! The view of the greenery of the land all around you is amazing. Pleasant weather at the top since there's wind blowing all the time. Even though it's hot down, it gets cooler at the top. Cable car ride was amazing, sufficient parking available, wheelchair friendly. Ignore going in high temperature days as there's minimum shelter at the top.
