  • Went to see the grounds and temple which we had seen previously and were anxious to see again. They assembled us together and spent over an hour talking about their religion which was interesting at first but eventually lost its appeal. Finally dismissed us to see the grounds only to find out practically the entire place was roped off and not open to visitors. Could only glimpse a tiny bit of the temple through the vegetation
  • Awesome temple. Peaceful, we attended a pooja 9am-10:45. Check the schedule if you want to attend and plan accordingly. You can easily spend a few hours even if you are not religious. There is place to meditate inside an extremely large banyan tree (yes inside).
