We nearly passed here and it was such an amazing sight I asked to stop! We didn’t have time to go inside but the exterior is beautifully ornate and definitely worth seeing!

I arrived as this spectacular temple and there was a festival on so foreigners were not allowed into the temple. Still there was a lot to see outside. The main "spire" is quite magnificently carved as it the smaller one. However, what I really liked...More
