  • The place is worth visiting.It is under construction so the importance is some what low.Once the temple is created it will be one of the best temples which has many mythological stories related to it.
  • Place is gettin renovated as of now. Yet beautiful. The temple has lord Krishna's idol sitting in the pose which is said was the one He was sitting in and was hit by a arrow. It also has the tree under which he was sitting.
  • Good place of religious importance. But temple is small and under renovation. Worth to visit if u are going in that route.

  • Lord Krishna left this world from this place jai shri Krishna
