  1. Beautiful place to worship lord Shiva…. U will get to see many other god temple. Due to COVID there is no too much rush.. within 10 min u will get darshan. Entry fee is 20rs..
  2. Nice place for worship, take your time and roam around the temple premises. Avoid visiting during afternoon time in summers. There will be too much crowd and hot humid conditions. Keep yourself hydrated. It tends to get hot due to the dry conditions.
