This is a very beautiful Temple. The grounds are manicured perfectly. The fireworks that go off every few minutes from the on site fireplace are a tad unnerving. Tourists are everywhere.

All over Asia; full with temples. And if you didn’t visit any, then it is a good idea to visit. Easy excess for handicaps. But not for inside the temples.

Beautiful architecture & design inside the building. Lovely to see local wedding parties there having photos. Lots of people but worth seeing. Ornate doesn’t do it justice - OTT!

We did this trip in conjunction with Big Buddha. The buildings are incredible and were quiet when we were there, which added to the feeling of peace about the place. A long drive in traffic from the west coast resorts .

Amazing temple - colourful, beautiful, magnificent inside out. Since it was the first and only buddhism temple that I visited I found it super exciting.
