The place was good and clean. You need to keep all your belongings outside before taking stairs to temple. Mobiles are not allowed up in temple. The view is awesome at top, you can see Buddha statue, Indian flagpole. Visit during evening when there's less temperature outside. You can't walk with bare foot since the floor is too hot during morning and afternoon.
The architecture of the temple is very nice. The detailing of each of the marble scriptures are mind-blowing. The view around the temple is also awesome. Very nice place to relax and pray to the lord. Only bummers are you need to remove your slippers and walk in the hot pathway which is not a nice feeling. Also have such exquisite architecture and not allowing phones is kind of draw back.
