  • Nice temple. Very calm and quiet place. Very beautiful landscape. Great place to visit
  • Looks good, nice view, but we got there early to just take photos of the sunrise outside and were turned away by the caretaker. Eventually some locals convinced him to allow us to take a photograph, bit we had to make a donation. Kind of a shame you can't see the place during the most beautiful part of the day. The owner next door from the jungle beach restaurant was really kind and helpful.
