This is a small temple in the heart of little India, the decorative interior is beautiful, highly ornate and I am guessing you would see something different every time you visited. Lovely peaceful vibe, if only this could be resonated all over the world eh?

past traditional barbershops while local residents in
brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from
decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful

Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts

The temple is open all the time, but at some times of the year, such as when Muslims are preparing for the Haj, it is very busy and tourists are not as welcome as they are at less busy times.
