  • A nice temple and quite an impressive Buddha image. Worth a visit, but be aware of people following you all the way telling you where to take a picture, telling you what you didn't ask and then asking you for a donation or telling you about their 81-years old uncle who is a monk and asking about a donation for that uncle after!

  • Serene Pagoda with huge Buddha statute, situated atop a hill. Along the route to the reclining Buddha. They also taught about Buddhism to locals at the back of this statute.
