This was a tough temple to figure out. Prayer times aren't posted anywhere. This is my third time here in the last two years. Construction is finally done and the temple is gorgeous.

We visited this legendary Sita temple in rainy season. It was extremely cold and raining cats and dogs. The temple is situated on the highway and right next to a river stream. Amazing ambience.

Though I am note sure how much religious following this place has among Hindus, but being a Hindu, i did visit this place. The temple is quite good on architecture. There's a stream that pass by, wherein there's the fabled Hanuman's footstep, which people flock to. A charming place for sure.

They say it's part of Ramayana. Nothing proved. Temple is good, all painted with gold colour. Good for people who are religious.

They say Hanuman's Foot Print is there. Small stream is going down behind the temple. Nice place to visit.
