  • It's a beautiful place with an amazing scenery from up top and very peaceful place. Though lots of tourists goes there, if ones lucky and don't find a lot of them, it's an amazing place to feel at one with ones inner self.
  • An ancient Buddhist temple on a hilltop with spectacular views of the surroundings. The temple itself is a piece of beauty. Proper manners need to be maintained while visiting the area since its a praying zone for Buddhist people. You have to buy entry ticket costing 30 BDT per person (till date) and have to enter bare feet. No person is allowed to enter the premises with shorts or capri.
  • Nice place to visit. A Buddhist Temple. No shoes inside the place. Entry fee Tk 30/- per person. Car Tk 50. Instruction written to take no video. Looks great at the last lights of sun.
