  • A must visit. A trek up the hill by road or steps and a lovely ashram. Unfortunately closed due to the COVID effect however, the walk and surroundings were worth it.

  • There's nothing much to say negative about this place. The experience as a pilgrim is amazing, and every part of the journey tends to provide you with a little bit more of peace. However, the lottery hecklers are creating a bad experience. The place however is peaceful, provided that it's not too crowded. I loved to sit under the mango tree, and indulge in my own thoughts without any disturbance.
  • Wonderful ashram..........................
