The majestic gardens and huge spatial chambers make this temple unique. It's beautiful, has a spiritual quality and the quiet and serenity is inviting. Seeing young students here makes it so appealing that a faith that is ancient is being relived daily.

This is a relatively large temple with several different aspects. Our guide (I would recommend using a guide unless you are very familiar with the Hindu religion) was able to explain the background to the ceremonies that were taking place in the temple during the time we were there.
