An inspiring visit, with well restored pavilions and a beautiful garden. A change of pace compared to the other attractions, but with a soul and a lot of poesy.

Marvelous temple structures without one single nail. Good toilets and leisurely visit for at least one hour and a half. Close to shopping street and plaza.

Nice visit to the temples however most of them have now been replaced with new buildings and made to look old which is a shame, would prefer to see the old buildings but still very pretty
