  • This temple is little noticed and no tourists but if that's your thing a visitor to do. Surely you can do a prayer without being disturbed is a lot of pictures

  • Beautiful not popular temple with many buddha statues. Good feeling
  • It's a quite temple with a school and graveyard attached. Skip it if you're pressed for time.

  • 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.
