  1. I visit this Temple every year this being my
    family Temple. The Deity is very powerful
    and she has appeared before our family members
    number of times and in fact once she has spoken
    to my grand father and informed the events
    that are going to take place. In our family,
    one of the girls are always named after her name.
    This temple needs little publicity in some
    leading magazines.
