  • Peaceful place of a really wise religion, so satisfied to find this out of chance. Easy to go there and can combined with a visit to the nearby Pagoda
  • Beautifully preserved temple. Fine garden with large, old trees and a few bonsai; elaborate carvings on the roof; inside, calligraphy and an impressive bronze statue. There are also a few 19th century documents inside: photos of the temple as it looked then, a map of its grounds.
  • One of the nicest temples I've ever been to and I've already seen quite some.
  • A bit of tranquility in the midst of the madness. Find a place by the lake to eat after your visit
  • It's very beautiful with many sculptures. Bonsai trees. It's peaceful and spiritual.
