  • Serene n beautiful temple in large sprawling grounds. Many nice statues n monuments. Huge Tori gates at the entrance leads to a wide field leading up to the main temple buildings. Before the gate lies the usual “cleaning area” where one should wash your hands before going into the temple grounds. There is also an adjacent area which had multiple Red Coloured Tori gates. Generally a quiet n contemplative atmosphere lends to the beauty of the temple grounds. Do donate a few coins at the Lions stone Statue n make a quiet personal wish. Excellent place for a quiet stroll in peaceful surroundings away from all the hustle n bustle of the city.
  • Very easy to get there just 5 minutes from Ohori park, also interesting handcraft shop.
