    We were there on a rainy day and the place was a mess. No place for travelers to stand also. Will not recommend to anyone. Not many parking available, had to park vehicle outside on the road side  more »

    Beautiful place to meditate! It's quiet and the spiritual environment is amazing. They serve delicious food and provide the best services at the Ayurveda center! :)

    Awesome place for meditation. The food they provide there is awesome much appreciated one. But don't buy anything from there it's very costly.

    The place is good to visit once. The structures and architecture are good. I felt the place pretty commercialized. Food items are costly. No proper place for the visitors to sit and relax.

    Excellent place for meditation, very peaceful. Ravi Shankar would also hold sessions here. The place is very airy too and has great views of the sunset. Probably one of the few places on earth where once can feel peaceful within
