  • Very impressive Buddhist temple, both by the height of the Buddha by the beauty of the surroundings and the accommodatrices galleries of the life of the Buddha. Great guide, the tour begins with the galleries with a monk who puts you a bracelet of cotton praying for you. We discover the Buddha (39 m high) when hole is the level of his head. The site and the sight of this height are worth visiting. Humor of the guide that made me ask with a little fat Buddha. An unforgettable souvenir of this visit.
