  • Beautiful not popular temple with many buddha statues. Good feeling

  • From all popular on the island temples I'd better visited unpopular! Sit in the temple with a multitude of Buddhas, it was something magical for me and this was the first temple that I snagged. And a huge tree in the territory.
