You need to climb steps about 100 to reach the top. Have temples of Shiva, Parvati, Ganesha and Hanuman.A nice place to relax. If not cloudy you can see the snow clad Anna purna ranges.

I went with the family at about 6:45 PM on the day before Navaratri. At the time of visit Arati was going on and there were different kinds of Arati being done by three Pujaris. It was exquisite to watch. Not to be missed.
