Reaching Dhabaleswar Temple
Right at the beginning of the religious zone, laid Boats both for tourism and for relief purposes. Hope you can notice the island on the other side of the river, the island of Lord Shiva, known here as Lord Dhabaleswar.
There is a small market of religious goods nearby. Nothing too noteworthy. It gives way to the entry point to the hanging bridge leading to the island. Here it is.
They charge 2 Rupees for your walk on the bridge.
I repeat… They charge 2 Rupees. For your walk on this remarkable bridge.
So the next time you waste your 2 rupees, think about all you can do with it.
Apparently, no takers for the boat rides today.
A five-minute walk on the bridge. And Voila! You are on an island. Yay!

The Garden Surrounding Dhabaleswar Temple
What surrounds the Dhabaleswar Temple is a gigantic garden dedicated to Lord shiva. There is a triangle shaped pond covered with weeds in the vicinity. I wish it were clearer.
And a walk among the trees inside the garden.
