This temple covers quite a huge space. I spent around 30 minutes to 1 hour walking around every corner. Some areas definitely need maintenance. The entrance is free and the temple is not crowded, which is good.

Response from Ko948 | Reviewed this property |
No shoes, including socks, allowed in the temple. Being a religious building, sensible clothes are suggested, as a sign of respect. This means revealing clothes should be avoided.
