Is this a free attraction for locals and tourists?
No it isn't. They charge you 200 rupees to get in, as well as more money to look after your shoes! whilst I was there they followed me around asking me for more money in the form of donations.
We paid 200 rupee to enter pp. I was asked to make a donation and chose to make a 500 rupee donation. So - in total, I paid 700 rupee.

There is no entry fee as such in other locations . However , there is a counter for donations which is voluntary .
There is an expectation of a donation, less than $2.00 Australian. Cheap at the price....
There is a very small fee under £1
