It took a while to locate this temple and even after checking with locals and auto drivers, it was difficult to pinpoint the location. Luck by chance we came across it. Evening time we visited and it stands out under light. South Indian architecture.

As westerners this was of real interest to us. We weren’t disappointed as it’s a very large and busy temple with amazing statues and paintings. Lots going on as well. The tower outside is impressive.
