Small but lovely...

It's a small temple with a lovely view, especially if you can catch it at sunset. The waters are calm and it seems to be a good place for a bit of meditation. Be sure to check... read more

This is a small pleasant little temple unusually built on a spit out into the sea, apparently because they were prohibited from building it on land. It's nice enough but nothing special/

Being a temple, this place has a specific appeal - however do read the history - it becomes an inspiring story. It's small, not as 'ornate' as other temples around the world, but well worth a visit.

I am not the best person to review the Temple by the Sea. It is a lovely little temple with puga flags flying, and Plaster of Paris Monkey Kings on each side of the entrance. But having traveled a great deal in Asia, I have visited many such temples. Particularly in Bali where these charming little places are found around... More

Great sunsets. Very peaceful place. Its a temple that sidelines as a tourist attraction. I think you can feel the spirituality of the place. Be away of the fact that it is an active place of worship. Not too exciting for the kids. Some great nature watching at the swamp. Stray dogs both take away and add to the experience.... More

Too many stray dogs roaming. Pretty bad area of town. Dirty area with stray dogs everywhere. Locals hanging out and drinking.

We went when a burial pyre was visible which was interesting. Our guide told us the history of one man carrying buckets of dirt to build the temple in the sea because it wasn't allowed on land. I enjoyed this more than the others in my group so i don't think it was for everyone but learning about the many... More

Visited for a short while a couple of days ago. Very serene, from the front surroundings to the walk to the temple and around it. There is alot of sitting areas to just sit and relax. A must see for both local and tourists.

Set way out on a spit of land, a beautiful temple. Take easily removable shoes if you want to go inside the temple (visitors of all denominations can go inside, but check for specific times). Peaceful lovely place and worth the drive.
