We have been going to this place since a long time, and earlier it used to be really beautiful when there were just these stones in the middle of the sea, and nothing else... cant help feeling that all the construction , which apparently makes things easier for pilgrims, only succeeds in spoiling the look of the place! and the last time i went, it was really dirty with rubbish all over the place... but your pics still make it look good///
