If you haven't visited many Buddhist temples, then this is worth a visit. If you have, it's nothing special. The only difference is it has a Pagoda. We didn't climb inside the Pagoda as this was an additional fee. The various temples are similar but...More

Night time by the pagoda is an open area used by impromptu groups for entertaining. When we were there there was a dance and music group in full swing-great stuff!

A very pleasant Pagoda in a well kept garden. There are other buildings in the complex, worth a visit but not extra special.

This historic pagoda is well worth a visit but keep in mind climbing it is by stairs only, and on a hot day this can test some people. It is best to climb it on a day with good visibility to enjoy the views from...More
