Such a peaceful place... Just don’t plan your time here... you probably won’t keep it if you enjoy peace
Awesome capture... Nice to watch.. Thanks,who capture that view
A longish uphill walk past numerous stall holders brings you a very attractive Hindu temple - dominated by local worshippers not tourists. In addition to the temple are some stunning views of the sea from the cliff tops. Well worth the walk
