Crowded temple. The drive through the twisted roads is nice. But on the top, no view, no shed. If you want to visit the temple keeping your shoes out in bare foot, then only go to this place.

I went to Kapilash Temple. The main Tower of Kapilash Temple is around 60 feet tall and it constructed with very beautiful design. Kapilash Temple was constructed by the King Narasinghdeva I of Ganga Dynasty. It is great place to go.
