Colorful, small temple with lots of activity. Hundreds of devotees at various shrines. I'm not sure exactly what was going on but it was fascinating to watch. There's a live, unchained elephant at the entrance!

There are several sculptural pieces on display. The hall itself is interesting. The renovations have not added much value. A visit is recommended
