Very picturesque temple which you can visit for free. The temple opens at 8.30 am and we would recommend you to be there right around that time to avoid the crowds, the heat and get a good chance of capturing those great shots without any other person in the frame. For 6 RM you can go all the way up (with an elevator) to enjoy the view over the city.
Was here 10 years back and it was a humble temple. Impressive in size but feel has lost a bit of its charm. felt like a big supermarket. would have liked if the temple was kept sacred for prayers and the commercial part perhaps at the bottom of the hill.
