  • Lovely and Beautiful views from here⛰️.You can visit any time Day or night. This is a lovely place. In the daytime the views of mountains is very beautiful.you can also visit a temple from mall road which is located on the top of mountain.The distance of the temple from mall road is approx 10-14km.
  • The walk through these lanes will always have a special place in your heart. The night view of the city holds you in the moment and doesn't want you to let go, so does the snow caped mountains shining in the bright sun does.
