  • Great temple. Meanwhile allowed him, the men but only with naked upper body. Wonderful huge Temple Hall. Unfortunately, you can not shoot inside. It is worth to visit the Hindu temple to Pujazeiten. We were very impressed with the ceremony.

  • We were already much in Asia on the road, but the atmosphere in this temple is really very special. Men are there Oberkörperfrei, photos are not allowed. The sounds are unique, when one visits him at the right time (we were in the evening about short before 18: 00)
