This is another fun place to go. The Dayan Pagoda is very interesting and the water show at night is fun to experience. It starts at 9:00 PM and goes for about 20 minutes maybe 30.

A bit disappointing and boring. OK to pass by quickly to see but was nothing that special. See it but don't plan to spend too long.

If you know a monk that travelling to the west. This monk was from this temple. This temple is good to visit and lots of history. You can hire local guide from the temple but she will try to upsale everything. But if you don't want to buy. Please make a clear statement to them.

This is a crowded, sunny and touristy area...but if you come for the mustical fountain show it is definitely worth it!! I coulnd't make it for the evening show so saw it in the day time and it was still terrrific. I will go back next time for the night version for sure.

Hang about to see the water show it is really worthwhile. Sit back and relax in lovely surroundings and people watch. If you head back towards Pagoda at night you can see the and join in the communal dancing as well.

i loved the musical fountain show - so much so that I went back at night to see it again. the show lasts 30 minutes, and is a delight. the afternoon show is less crowded than at night, but at night you get colored lights as well as the music and water, so it's worth the extra crowding. I recommend... More

Fabulous historical site with great carvings and statues set in beautiful gardens. A rainy day but well worth a visit.
