The temple had long history . Easy to be here . Nice view . Monkeys are nice and could be seen here but be careful and take care of your food . Good place for travelling . Only 8kms from border.

Good place for rest,relax, picnic. Many big fishes in the water. Nothing more. If you are close to fish cave and want relaxing 1 or 2 hours this is a fresh place to go.
