  • Architectural marvel. But undoubtedly an Buddhist built. The postures and rituals followed in the temple gives a question of heterogenous origin.
  • Awful if you want to see the whole can see people around who allow you to see only specific places and shrine gods... nothing is like before and yeah especially the officers are rude af and completely hate that special entry system where they charge extra 250 ₹ and still make you go in the same line after a small strip and you'll be waiting the same as the other side where you don't have any advantage and I didn't like it personally and the response of the official was mean..I mean that official doesn't deserve to be there , he ruins many people's mood before going into the temple itself man. Honest saying...
