  • It is a very beautiful temple. Definitely worth a visit. It is located near a Thai neighbourhood and a jungle-like area. It is interesting to see the way the pagodas are build. They look old, and to us, jungle-like as well. It is very peaceful and quiet at the temple, because it is not crowded with tourists.
  • Really cool old structures that just look amazing. The temple is small, but a lot of detailed art work & great murals on the walls inside. Was lucky enough to witness two monks be inducted while I was there.
  • Nice buddhist temple near city center
  • Very old and interesting temple that you can walk around
