  • Excellent design in the rock garden, lawn, main hall, all the temples in an overwhelming beauty. It was impressed to see the architecture of Le Corbusier. Who likes design is a place you want to visit in the mast.

  • A nice Buddhist temple which used to be the place of monks' meditation. Huge and well-maintained structures plus spacious area. Not very much to see but you can feel the peaceful and quiet environment.
  • And early in the morning pray quietly. From 10 o'clock well visited by many tourists. Staff will volunteer staff from 10 o'clock.

  • Airy brightness of grass outside the meditation room dimness was impressive. Ceiling paintings are dark and look, it may be better.

  • Treasure Hall, the gate was particularly impressive. I think pretty good and was good to go. Went immediately after the opening of the 9:00, so people at least calm look was. Again, not a really good go!

  • Anyway I was surprised at the size of the building. Underserved administrative staff feeling is overwhelming, said the national treasure.
