  • Nice temple. Well maintained. We can find many varieties of fishes in temple's fond
  • Beautiful Shiva Temple.. very quite..And peaceful.. good place to visit in the morning for a divine and spiritual experience.
  • Very calm and peaceful place. The chants by priests at the background in the evening make it even more mesmerising.
  • Nice, calm atmosphere inside the temple. This is situated just opposite of the madimeri fort. It is closed in the afternoon and opens at 5pm.
  • Beautiful Gothic style temple, must visit for tourists. It has a beautiful Kalyani with big fishes in it, kids would live this place. Probably, this is one of the temples in India built in Gothic structure that makes it important.
