    It's a famous temple located in the hills, there's a small hike with concrete stairs. There's a giant waterfall and the view is breathtaking. Do not miss out on this one.  more »

    Temple is situated in natural cave. You can see beautiful waterfalls in rainy season. You have to climb stairs for about 20 min. to reach Temple. Temple is surrounded by mountains from three sides. You have to drive carefully as road is curvy n condition of road is not good.
