Thousands of devotees throng here throughout the year from all over the world, and the crowd gets uncountable during festive occasions. Besides being a centre of religious values, this 1400 years old temple is an excellent sample of ancient architecture; the perfect place to experience the ethnicity of Indian culture.

You may attempt a visit only if you have the courage to travel this distance on foot, else this may be given a miss. There are some famous Hindu temples also situated on the same hill; making it a convergence point for both Hindu and Jain pilgrimages as also tourists.
