  • A cultural heritage of Hindu community. Very renowned and respected religious place. Here since long, been destroyed by invaders, and again rebuild. What is unique, it shares it's boundary wall to a mosque, giving a beautiful example of India's communal diversity and secular spirit and mutual harmony. *Pictures aren't allowed*
