Temple is busy on special dates and during the lunar new year. Otherwise it's best to go on a weekday when it's not as busy. Vegetarian meals in the tiny restaurant are good...it's kinda hidden in the back of the temple.
This place is very impressive.My wife spotted this place as we were driving by.What a surprise of a most unique place.I have traveled throughout Asia and saw many famous pagodas and this one laid out in a very traditional manor.

Amazing place complete with gardens. There is an incredible golden Buddha statue but you are asked not to take photos. Definitely worth a look!
Great vegetarian meals
