You can also notice sculptures all around the temple depicting various stories of the Goddess and Shiva. Since photography is not allowed inside the temple, I couldn’t click any of those except the main tower. See the bigger picture by clicking on the photo.

There is on speciality at this temple. There is a godess called Yakshini. If you have any wish, Just write your wish on a paper and tie that paper on the godess. She will fulifill that wish.
