  • I feel this is bit exaggerated. It is well balanced bigger rock in shape of a ball. Must see.
  • Huge rock boulder precariously balanced on one end. Awesome sight to see. Also see the temple on both sides of this boulder
  • Historic and significant, it's a nice place to see. Good for history buffs. The speciality is the Rock being held onto the mountain.
  • Good tourist and pilgrimage site. Many places to visit around Has good transport service
  • This is amazing example of a tourist spot... Most attraction in there the rock standing on top of the slop, #i loved in this rock...... You must visit.
