"It has a rare beauty"

1 week ago
My 2 days visit to the place changed my way to look at life. The Maa Tara temple is a place where you would find the rarest beauty of Maa. The best time to visit temple is at 3:30 am or so in the morning, if you could arrange somehow to get a glimpse of the real statue of lord Shiva and maa ( only men are allowed). But then the other two layers of statue are another great piece of experience to see and get changed. The maharasan another must visit place.

I have gone the Maa Tara Temple many times. Every time I go I see a new look of the temple, it's very good. Every day thousands of people gather there to see Maa Tara from the various parts of India. I am proud to born such a religious place. This place is very pleasant full. I really enjoyed.

One gets energized the moment one sets his foot inside the temple. There is feeling of peace and sanctity.
