  • It' s classic temple ... nothing much ... Remember No shorts ... i will probably forgot it soon ... it's not a to be seen place ... 
  • The still new, and was smooth even the Buddha in the temple is very beautiful. It is a temple building of the round tower very unique and cute.

  • A decent Buddhist temple with a large Buddha and a 7 tier pagoda...well maintaimed garden and close enough to the center. Becomes a worthy place to visit with some digging into its history
