There was nothing interesting to me about the shrine itself, but the location it occupies and the surrounding attractions is what makes this a place you will probably visit.

You can enjoy bottom view from this shrine. But it was really very noisy due to shopping shop besides. To have proper and silent view of Nachi fall use paid section. Thats really stunning view. and you can enjoy much better.
