A very old Temple that has maintained all these years. Very nice and must visit. Need to climb about 60 - 70 steps which are very steep and difficult for elder people to climb.

The atmosphere is spiritual in nature, there are fair amount of worshippers. Some commercial spots for gifts. I wish there were a tourist center where history and/or background can be introduced.
