Take some time to have a look around inside this temple and look up at the huge statue in awe. It really is an amazing sight to see Photos are charged as extra but for me it was worth it Wallk around the side of the building and spin the prayer wheels

We went with a guide provided for by Stone Horse Expeditions. He was very knowledgeable and explained to us the different statues as well as the surrounding monasteries. If you go alone, you can get a paper pamphlet at the entrance, which has short write ups in English for the different monasteries.

It is a local favorite place. We sat there to observe worshipers asking lamas for their wishes and personal affairs. Very interesting place to visit.

Take your time to explore and take it all in. Always better if your in good company. Embrace (and prepare for) the differences that this places holds. Exceptional experience if you're a Buddhist.

This is a lovely location. The Buddha is amazing; the prayer wheels and other shrines that line the space around the Buddha add to the experience.

Beautiful inside, but prepare to wade through groups of scammers, pickpockets and hassle from beggars to get in to the complex.

big and beautiful - with beautiful prayer wheels surrounding the image. The people praying and lighting candles are very real - and very nice. One handed me a match to light - a great experience.
