  • Very large temple with many buildings spread over a large area. Like any place of worship there emerges a very RESTful serenity after the activity of the shopping malls teeming life. The sculptures are beautiful, the typical architecture of the buildings with their roofs in tiles glazed. We can't visit the Interior of the temples, but the exteriors are beautiful enough to deserve the detour.
