If you have enough time then you can go this temple. Not more attactive but an old temple located near hot of the city. If you are going with family you can plan this temple to spent time. Evening time is best to go.
A simple old temple at a walking distance near the city center. Visited during the afternoon and was not at all crowded. Access road is narrow but quite good and can be accessed using any vehicle. It has limited parking. Visit once and get blessed.
Pretty temple. Not much crowded. I would advise to go der in the evening because the structure in the water is illuminated& the reflection in the water gives an amazing view. The temple is calm and peaceful.
Our hotel was overlooking this temple, so it was very easy for us to visit it early in the morning, when the atmosphere there is just serene. It is nice silent temple, which is well maintained. There is also a small pond in the middle.
Visit it early in the morning, gives you peace of mind.
