  1. Hello,I visited this palce yetsardey. It is a nice place for day picnic (Chill breeze and no pollution). It is not a popular picnic spot as it has the temple alone. No other sight seeing spots. One has to be prepared before going up the hill. No cell phone signal, No tea/anyother shops, no restaurants at the top. The temple is a very old temple constructed about 400 years ago and is well maintained. The temple is opened from 6M to 8PM every day. I heard that there are couple of tribal villages, but not visited those.The roads are decent and are very steep. One should have tight brakes in their vehicle to climb down the hill.Overall, it was a nice experience.
