The panorama at the summit deserves plenty of attention (and picture-taking), as you take in the reverential, contemplative atmosphere of this secluded spot.

Beautiful place. You need minimum 0,5l water to climb on this temple. On the top you could drink free water and stock up your empty bottle. The views are amazing. I recommend this place 😊
