Totally worth it to get a guide! We learned a lot and would have not known what to look for without him! Gorgeous temple campus with lots of buildings!

This complex has MUCH more than just the Reclining Buddha. It is a large complex and it is easy to miss a lot of it. There are a number of Buddhas / Temples on the grounds. Not unusually, also...

The vibe is extremely positive here and it’s a must visit place as this is one of the tourist attraction. This place is maintained well and is neat. There’s a separate place to offer prayers and to burn incense sticks. Burn incense sticks only in the dedicated area allotted. If you are buying a small Lord Buddha statue, do not place it down as this is considered disrespectful and please maintain dress code here as you will be asked to otherwise no entry into the temple. If wearing clothing which has Buddha print on it then the entry into the temple is barred. Please dress appropriately.
A nice place to visit to be get in touch with the religious side of The Land of a Thousand Smiles. Lots of instagram-worthy photo spots around and the lovely architecture is really quite aesthetically pleasing. Also, be enchanted by the giant statue of Buddha lying sideways. It is really quite a sight. There is also a massage centre within this temple, from which many therapists hone their skills before they practice professionally as a massage therapist. The massage is good and the rates are affordable. The therapy cubicles are also comfortable too. I would recommend this as a place to visit for a massage as this is as close to authenticity as it gets. A nice place to spend half a day at. 😉👍🏻
