We were lucky enough to be at this beautiful monastery on the celebration of the builders birthday. Set in front of the mountains with the mist spiralling, the celebrations involved all the monks young & old, made for a really spiritual experience.

It's beautiful small monastery within the city limits and one can get the taste of Buddhists' customs. The statues are beautiful, well decorated and cleanliness is superb.
