The place is good for worship, but there is a need to improve the access. Its crowded with shops and sometimes you come across with touts and pickpockets. The priests in the temple are very helpful, they help elderly ones and allow you to take your time. A lift for elderly ones to access the jyot can be beneficial.

Temple is located at hilltop and climbing stairs is required. You may take an auto from the Bus Stand to avoid walking. It is a shaktipeeth and a visit is recommended.

I have visited this temple number of time but never had that feeling whenever visited again. Always had peaceful feeling. nice arrangement to handle huge number of visitors. Parking is also not an issue since there is private car parking beside local bus stand.
