  • Stunning temple. Have been coming here for the last ten years.. It's so clean and the monk's welcome you in to join in prayer. Loads to see. And time to contemplate. And outside is a small market selling noodle soup and fresh fruit. Nice also to see that European tourist are making the trip to this temple....
  • Very beautiful temple from the outside and inside. If you've (n)ever been in a temple, then it's impressive to check out this. If you're "lucky" you might get to see a moment where a lot (really a lot) of the monks get together and start praying. Which was interesting for us. But you have seen the place after about 20 minutes. Nothing much more to check out. Then it's up-and-away you go, back to your bus, taxi or scooter.
