"The place is good enough. Rudraksh shivling, Vaishno devi gufa, Bhawani Shankar gufa and And so many other places.. But I guess after 1st rain, this place is going to become top tourist destination as well. East to reach. Few stalls for eatables. Triyodashi is the best day to visit if u r willing to see Sringar aarti. "

"Temple is maintained in its natural form,the caves are still there in original state . Two caves joined by a steel bridge and a clear stream of water flowing under it enhances the beauty of this place . Must visit for a spiritual retreat."
