  • Located a bit away from the other temples, near the old lighthouse, but and a beautiful walk and well worth a visit this temple which boasts some beautiful reliefs representing the goddess Durga in the Act of killing a demon

  • The ancient temples where goddesses were worshiped. The carving n the echo. The light house is worth a visit.  more »
  • The cave is located to the left of the bas-relief "descent of the Ganga. The entrance to the cave reinforced columns, upon which sit lions guarding the rest sleeping Vishnu and not impeding Durga to fight the demon Mahishasuroj. Locals call this temple is another temple and the old lighthouse, because the cave is located on its ground floor. Gotta come here necessarily. From here you can enjoy fantastic views of the surrounding area. However, be careful with shiny objects that are very fond of monkeys. You can lose them.
