I loved the energetic vibe, the long lines of people waiting to enter the temples, and the interesting plaza of small buildings, makeshift shrines. It's... More

It is located on a hill and there are several temples in this area. It is dedicated to the "wish fulfilling" god. It was built in the 17th century.

Beautiful colorful gardens surround this temple. And if your lucky you'll see an equally beautiful and colorful wedding going on at the same time as I did. Worth a visit.
