I enjoyed exploring the least known or less touristy place. This is one of them. This is a small temple yet full of local flavours. I took my time to stroll around and inside the temple. Spent some time watching how the local practice their...More

While everyone/thing is trying to tell you a story, you'd enjoy a moment of sweet silence when you enter this temple. This has it's own story to tell if you'd walk through it, the scripts on the wall, the faded paint at the corners. A...More
