Great visit. It was a spiritual experience. The temple environment is great and clean. Also visited the top of Nilachal hills which had a great bird's eye view of the city. Perfect escape from the daily mundane work life.

The temple and the roads leading up to it were heaving with people and very good for people photos. Temple itself is nothing amazing and if you don't want to see the animal sacrifices then easy to avoid it.
