  • It's a big and majestic temple with beautiful architecture. Worth visiting. Don't forget to go up to the 2nd level where you can see directly the Buddha statues. 
  • We are located just steps from the door of the car accessibility. The ascent on foot a little, but it is not difficult enough. I'm having trouble mounting the kids walked holding. Weather in unobstructed sea views, if we can feel it can be a different experience. It's a good idea to walk.
