Regarding to the visit, strictly no photo inside the temple and the museum. They also displayed "no photography"...More

Visited this place with my friends. But unfortunately some event was going on there and the Math was completely crowded. So not enjoyed a peaceful evening by the river bank. But still I like the Math.
