  • i thoroughly relished the temple and the temple is pretty big and the erotic panels are good worth visiting javeri temple 
  • More modest in comparison to the temples of the Western Group, a bit more neglected, but also in the area less willingly visited by crowds of tourists, which adds to its charm

  • In the middle of the street are placed a bit desolate Temple is quite so. I live near the children remember a little awkward to bother with.
