Galtaji is an ancient Hindu pilgrimage site in the town of Khaniya-Balaji Indian state of Rajasthan. The site consists of several temples and sacred kunds (water tanks) in which pilgrims bathe. It is believed that Saint Galav spent his life at Galtaji, practiced meditation, and did penance (tpasya).The site was of particular importance to the Vaishnavite Ramandandis

Galtaji has been a retreat for Hindu ascetics since the early 1500s; its present temple was built by Diwan Rao Kriparam, a courtier of Sawai Jai Singh II, in the 18th Century. The main temple is the Temple of Galtaji, built in pink stone. The temple features a number of pavilions with rounded roofs, carved pillars, and painted walls.
There is another temple in the complex, the temple of Balaji. Yet another notable temple at Galta is Surya Temple; Surya is dedicated to the Sun God and was built in the 18th century.

;). Me alegro que te guste. Si, efectivamente con sonido da mucho más. El problema fue que tenia que ir descalzo, pisando cosas no muy agradables por todos los lados y con un monopod que se meneaba más que espinete en barrio sésamo, pero al final salió algo aceptable :P.
