We enjoyed our quick visit to this temple. There were very few tourists around which made it more special. We did the roughly 600 step hike to the top and enjoyed a great view.

A unique temple as there are more than 1,200 steps to reach up to the temple. Very cooling as it is located in the country side.

Went in december when the weather is cooling. The view at the top was splendid, definitely worth the 1200++ steps.
