There is always a long queue if you visit before 2pm, both while going and returning. And after a long walk finding the temple under construction is disappointing. The cable care to reach the temple is very attractive and fun. But go between 3pm and...More

It is just a temple of goddess believed to fulfill one's wish. You can go with anyone. There is no harm going unmarried couple but inappropriate actions are prohibited.
