This is a modern Buddhist temple which has much going on.Big impressive stautes and large halls and a huge compound to go with it. Very spacious and impressive. Its also very colorful. the statues, flags and the clothes of the people at the temple make it look like a very happy place.

I have visited many Buddha temples and there is a uniformity in them, they are very quite and peaceful. The same goes for this temple also, you can easily spend hours without doing anything.

Of interest only if one is a devotee. Each visit shows up more cracks & crumbling plaster. Lots of repair work being carried out.

This is a huge Buddhist Monastery and seems to be on all the day tours as a stop. Nice states of Buddha and lovely gardens . In the forecourt there are many small Happy Buddha statues depicting him communing with various animals . Make sure you check out him having tea with 2 Mice/rats?

I had heard a lot about this temple. But honestly it wasn't as attractive as I had thought. Catching a taxi to this temple might be a problem so its better u catch one at the ferry junction itself.
