Raja Ram Temple! . Unique points about this temple are: 1. Only temple across India, where Shri Ram is worshipped as the King and not as a god. 2. Usually the temples are open all day for the pilgrims, but this temple opens only twice a day for everyone. In morning from 8AM - 10AM & evening from 8PM - 10PM.
