  • The most important thing about this place cannot be put in words. It is the feel of the place, the atmosphere of peace in the middle of a busy metropolis is striking but a poor description. You just have to experience it. Physically it is a delightful cloistered temple with a central inner sanctum. Striking Sitting statues, I think of the great gurus or saints of the religion are in an arcade of shrines around the cloisters with more in the inner temple. Devotees walk around the cloisters stopping at each shrine and ringing a bell on each of the four sides. The physical description as I say is wholly insufficient explanation. Do go there.
