  • If you have time for online one temple this one has to be. As you enter you are firstly struck by the beauty of the garden pond. When you enter the first chamber you wonder what you see doing there...

  • Love the peaceful scenery around here. There is a turtle garden inside. The entrance is just amazing. You have to go through the cave entrance then you will see the turtle garden there. Any visitor who wish to come here, please don’t throw any rubbish around and keep clean. Do donate for their maintenance purpose. Should keep these place intact. Do visit and donate guys!
