I haven't seen such a huge temple made of white marbles! Wow, simply beautiful! Gold and silver are used so much in the construction of this temple, be it doors, windows and cones on the temple building. There are hills called Araasur and people normally come around to climb one of the hills here and of course, they do not miss to visit the temple having a huge terrace which is fully crowded on some religious festival days. This one temple has got many other temples inside the premise, each having importance for different elements of life. The stepped well sort of structure is just mesmerizing and gives spiritual feeling.
