Must visit for ramayana fans and the surronding is amazing. The day we visit it was soo cold. I couldn't even remove my shoes to go into the temple. So i check from outside. Other family members went inside.

The Chinmaya Mission ashram has constructed an extremely impressive temple high on the mountain. The temple is very well kept with regular Puja and Archana.

Offers a great view over the town. Can keep going up to single tree hill and then pass down to the village via a connecting path.

Breathtaking views from the temple, nearby rivers and mountains makes it a great place to visit. The Chinmaya mission nearby is an added attraction.

After a short climb from the car park you arrive at this temple which is kept quite immaculately clean and tidy. On entering the temple you come face to face with a very large black statue of Hanuman. It is quite impressive and worth the...More
