Pagoda small and rubbish everywhere. We caught a monk taking a selfie with the Buddha statute! Totally not a sacred place at all. Just a tourist trap that is void of meaning. The locals don't come here.

I was there when some national holliday was attenting so pagoda was closed for visitors. Also it was very crowded, with lots of police and security, many roads were closed. So I just passed and took a look at pagoda from outside.
