  • 🪷ॐ नमो भगवते वासुदेवाय🪷 It is such a beautiful temple. Walking around the temple felt so divine. The most eye-catching thing was the entrance gate of the temple which was so big and can be seen from far away. I am really blessed that I got the chance to visit this temple in this life.
  • My visit to this temple was especially magical. The complex feels as if it is really living, with incense and scents wafting through the air - not like other places of monuments elsewhere which have simply become a tourist attractions. Bag (Rs. 15) and shoe storage available at a kiosk outside the temple for a small fee. No shorts allowed, I wore a collared shirt with short sleeves and it was okay.
