  • This place is usually closed, we walked it from town & it goes through a "national park" so there were lots of birds & mokeys to see & of course tea plantations all the way.  more »
  • Inside the monastery to the public not know went on a weekday position. By the way, as I remember some of the locals go. (Came to meet, which is excellent.) Box office's locked front door key, no one else in the forest next to the yen will go to only see the outside. The atmosphere is very good. It was a calm feeling a reverential (?). Be sure to check the dates.
