Beautiful little gem hidden here, someone had built these beautiful statues, they now became part of the landscape. You do not need more than 30mins here. Still worth a visit.

A hidden gem in the forest, you can feel the effort by the sculptor. All the statutes here can give you a feeling of inner peace, the garden was really beautiful, we have no regret to visit here even though it was raining day.

This is not a temple, with sculptures in the jungle with cool waterfalls there. Quite far from main road. Just spent 30mins there to take photos only.

A nice little garden with some statues and small waterfall. Not really worth the trip and entrance fee.

If you’re already in the area then it’s a nice place to visit. It’s quite small and you wouldn’t need very long here but it’s very tranquil and peaceful and seemingly build into its surroundings. You have to pay a small amount to get in...More

No. Definitely wouldn't walk it - need a car or moped. It's pretty steep and no real paths.
