  • Oasis of peace in the middle of big city. This monastery is such a calm and clean place, making you forget where you are. Often, you can see Buddhist monks taking lessons in some of the small rooms on the outer side of the monastery.
  • Very impressive temple. Interesting that this is where the king went to. I only wish that they had a bit more info in English.
  • very nice temple, have good experience there. Considerate facilities has drinking water provide, the staff are friendly. The souvenir sold are very reasonable.
