If you visit here, make sure you visit with a sincere heart. I suggest you to make prayer inside the temple, beside you can see what is inside (but no picture inside the temple), you can do meditation. a fast in and out.

I like the place as I got to see the different types of houses. My friends were not impressed and felt that the place should be maintained better in order to call itself an attraction. Loads of locals who picnic-ed there. Stall owners will try to rip you off since you are a foreigner.

Cikaret-Ciapus road was in good condition, but the smaller road to the Temple was quite bumpy. So, had to drive slower from that left-turn. Parking area was wide, it could fit many vehicles, even big ones like... More
