    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.
