  • A perfect destination for meditation. I felt a magical change in me when I reached there. A peaceful and very beautiful place. People were very friendly and polite. I booked an electric rickshaw, my friend left his mobile phone in rickshaw, The driver was very honest person. He carried his mobile phone and returned us. We were surprised to see his honesty. Overall Our experience was very good. I want to come once again.
  • If I get the chance to visit it again I would do it thousand times. It's never boring there. Every new visit feels different and calming/peaceful.
