Sea Shore Temple Reviews
2018年8月から外国人は600ルピーに値上げしたようです。インド人は40ルピーなので、この差に入場をためらいたくなりました。因みに海岸から柵ごしに寺院は遠目ですがみえます。 more »Since August 2018, foreigners have raised the price to 600 rupees. India people are 40 rupees, so I want to hesitate to enter this gap. Incidentally, the temple from the coast to the fence is distance.
I visited this place with my friends last week. This temple is located near to sea shore and the sight is so beautiful to look . more »
This place is one of the wonders of ancient history. Very peaceful and best for relaxation on weekdays and on winters. Very good place to spend leisure time. Very good place of Indian history and rich Indian culture.This place Carries a unique style of people remembrance about their knowledge and wisdom thousands of years back. This is a living monument and historical representation even after so many natural calamities stands tall.
Momentous. But, sad that the government has implemented entry fee system that costs too much for the site. Located right next to the sea, the place provides you with a sense of calm and peace. Visit here in the evening (before 6,which is the maximum visiting time alloted by the authority). The site is well maintained.
