If have love for the sacred and the eastern philosophy - you must visit . The location is not too ideal but if you have a taste for The old monasteries this place is worth your time . Not for a hurried traveller with constraint on time .

Located almost opposite a Taoist temple, this Buddhist temple contains a very large statue of Buddha. Footwear needs to be left outside, but didn't seem to be any objections to taking photographs inside. Wasn't too busy when I visited early on a Saturday afternoon. Worth a stop.

This temple is very different with other Buddha Temple in the world. If you are a Buddhist, this is a very worthy place to discover. If you not, you also should visit it because of its beautiful construction.

The outside of the temple is simple with lovely Thai decoration along the gable roof line culminating in a dragon on each tip. The front of the building has colourful paintings on the gable and relief statues on the facade above the 3 entrances. Under guidance from my Buddhist friends we used the right hand entrance door stepping over the... More

There is a big Buddha statue, and at the bottom, around the statue, the history of Buddha's life is written and illustrated with many other statues. In a small room inside, accessed at the backside, you can find a lying Buddha statue. There is another room at the left side of the statue with 1000 small lights on the wall.... More

Interesting temple. No frills, not so modern but that does not stop me from making multiple visits here to worship Buddha.
