Kali Temple

TIME : 2016/2/17 15:40:21

If you don’t mind a steep 30-minute uphill climb, you can head up a series of shortcuts on concrete steps to reach this modern hilltop temple for excellent mountain views. The site is occupied by the army, but there’s a viewing tower that attracts hordes of local sightseers at weekends and villagers sell suntala (small oranges) beside the path in autumn. On the way you’ll pass Shanti Ban , a massive golden statue of Buddha.

It’s also the way to Namobuddha, so if you plan on heading there, it makes sense to save the walk up here till then.
