Also embedded here and there on the floor was unfortunately not inside photography, sculpture was as one of the highlights.

  • Stunning. The main temple and gardens on their own would be worth a visit, but the carvings on the ceiling of the Kaisando annex are simply breathtaking. Amazing details and colors. You climb some steps to a raised floor so they seem really close. The annex is a tiny wooden framed building with a thatched roof and the whole thing is protected from the elements by a huge roof.
  • The carving was awesome. It's walkable from the local station.
  • And was this impressive temple. Near what you regret passed times but never noticed. It is a temple of butterfly clouds.
