The Buddha statues are varied and interesting. Bring a hat and water, as it gets intensely hot here when the clouds move away.

The grounds here are so beautiful and the many Buddha statues are impressive. Climb to the top of the temple and you have an amazing view of the grounds.

Nice place to visit where there are lots of statues and a big stupa for photog to shoot some nice photo. You may go up to the stupa side and throw some coins into the well for wish making.

Imposing statues, a steep climb to the temple, and a well laid out complex. This place looks relatively less ruined.
