“Incredible - but take care”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

An amazing place to visit, but beware even people with an official tourist guide uniform on do not tell the truth, visitors use your common sense! If you feel unsure then you probably have good reason too.

“Elaborate and Beautiful”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

The temple is beautiful, but the Buddha is small and unimpressive compared to the elaborate decor of the rest of the temple.

“Excellent Cultural Experience”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

The archetecture and area around the temple are exquisite. The detail in the buildings is very ornate. Even with daily crowds, the atmosphere is peaceful.

“should be in the list”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

as it had been the royal temple for many kings. Great structure building with fine decoration represented each era can be seen. It is a mix of times, you can see it from the diversity of styles. Inside wall are painted to depict ancient tales.
