It's one of the famous tourist destinations located near Ranchi. It's a beautiful architecture display. The temple looks majestic with seven horses driving 18 wheels design. It was constructed by a charitable trust called “Sanskrit Vihar.” It's the best place for those interested in exploring the Hindu culture.
