  • This is a peaceful temple cradled at the edge of the mountains. There is a bus that runs close to here from the city too. I would highly recommend staying here for the temple stay program as they even teach martial arts here that is based on yoga. The rock carving that this is famous for is really interesting to explore.
  • It was the best night's sleep I've had in ages and I enjoyed every aspect of the stay. Thank you.
