You need to climb steps about 100 to reach the top. Have temples of Shiva, Parvati, Ganesha and Hanuman.A nice place to relax. If not cloudy you can see the snow clad Anna purna ranges.

This White domed Hindu temple is surrounded by several other small Hindu temples. It would be helpful if someone there explains the religious significance of the various sites. One is able to take interesting photographs of the surrounding area from this location.
