  • An awesome drive up to the hills.... With a mesmerising view !!! A place worth visiting, with worship on your mind.  more »
  • Crowded and you take your life in your hands when driving - the locals career up the hill the wrong way in what is allegedly a one-way system.  more »
  • You pass by the statue on the way down from the temple. It had just been painted so looks amazing. You can walk round it or just admire it from a small platform.  more »
