The drive here was beautiful. The hill is populated by monkeys (baboons) who sit by the road as you drive by. The temple itself is a beautiful place to visit, just wish there was more to do there.

Good place for trekking. We can walk through different routes. A kind of chill forest temple. Also we can go by cab while climbing the mountain.
