We wandered in en route to the Golden Mount - what a stunning find. Fantastic calm atmosphere; recently renovated and pristine in the early sunshine. Hardly a soul about so really able to appreciate and meditate. Loved it!

Yes, the temple entry is free and devoid of crowds as it is in a secluded place. Very peaceful to spend an afternoon at the temple. Walk up to the fifth storey to enjoy awesome views of the city.
