To know more about how to use this website effectively please refer to the How to page where you will be guided to use all the features.
Please Note : Since this website is a non-profit based one, the data gathering and information publishing including photographs happens to be at a slow pace, as the author of this website has to take out time during the vacation/weekends and travel to these places atleast once. So please keep visiting quite often to find new entries.
A provision of sending email notification about an addition of temple would be done shortly, so that you can visit the site once its updated.
