Very interesting site, it's a medium size temple and you can have a rest or pray for Buddha at the internal of the main temple. Be awar, you will have to have respect for the local rules

most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
