Highly powerful and dharmik temple.

Very powerful and dharmik temple. Very big temple. Clean and very well maintained. River kumaradhara was also clean and well maintained. Various Puja services available at tempke were good and at affordable prices. Priests seems to be learned. This is the only temple where sarpa dosha nivarana is done.
