  • Excellent piece of Architecture. Very neat & clean. You can visit early morning to see better view. Very Calm Place. The Sun rays during dawn directly reaches to the centre of the temple. Temple is surrounding by beautiful gardens. Best Place for doing Yoga "Suryasan"
  • It is a small but relaxing holy place to visit in your free time. The beauty of temple is awesome. Lot of greenery around to add to its sight. Prayers are done at 6 in the morning and evening sharp. Best part is that like other temples u don't have to spend lot of money here. The prasad shop outside is very simple held by a person since a long time.
  • Mesmerizing if you visit early morning, can see parrots and dancing peacocks. Beautiful temple, very peaceful to meditate. Not many shops nearby and did not find a public transport but lots of autos to take u here
  • This Sun temple is built in the modern times. Built in 1988 by Birla, the temple is set amidst forested grounds. The temple has a beautiful idol of Sun god. Good for disciples as well as for people looking for some peace. A small shop inside sells packed food and tea coffee etc.
  • I can say it's worth visiting there. We went there in the early morning in the summer. The temple and it's vicinity have been well maintained. All the areas are clean and we can see greenery everywhere. Basic infrastructure like drinking water, toilets, cupboard etc are all available there. The place is cool and soothing so you can come and relax without any disturbances. Higly recommend place.
