  • Very nice place... 700 steps to climb ... Better to complete by noon to avoid sun as need to go bare foot over stone steps... There is a separate hill called Chandragiri Hill opposite to this. Need 2-...  more »

  • A great monolithic statue, a slightest imagination make you wonder how it was carved out from top to bottom with so much perfection. On top of the hill you feel tranquility and Eternal peace. The Pilgrimage you will always cherish.
  • Must visit to see one of the largest free standing statues in the world. You need to climb up around 500+ steps to reach up the hill top. Would suggest you take the climb in the morning or evening.
