  • If you have the chance, like us, to visit this temple a day of national celebration, it will remain a moment forever.

  • It's really impressive. A very interesting visit. A maze of galleries and a climb to the sides of this giant statue does not leave you indifferent.

  • I have visited many Buddhist temples but none was similar to this. You enter an unobtrusive entrance to the underground passageways winding walls with lots of paintings and depictions from the life of Buddha, a maze of staircases vystúpate putujete ... then all of a sudden you find out that you are at the head of the giant Buddha and enchants with not only the statue but also the views of the resort and the surrounding rice fields-one of the most beautiful churches I have had the opportunity to see.
