Interesting trip to this location. Shame that fellow visitors didn't seem to realise that it is a holy and contemplative place..... The little sop has some lovely relevant items for sale.

The views are gorgeous. We loved the quiet of the area. On a clear day you can see for miles and miles. Beautiful place.

Sadly the Stupa was closed all day (Monday) when we got there, so avoid it then, but from the outset I was excited to see this, very tranquil, but don't invision a long stay there. Nice side sight. Supposedly the largest in the Western world.

Accidentally we have visited the stupa which was a wonderful experience. We recommend it to anybody who is interested in buddhism or other religions. The view from the stupa is amazing. Inside you can feel the harmony of this place. We have met there a very nice Hungarian guy - Zoli - who was telling us many interesting thoughts. Taking... More

On Good Friday last there was Passion Play just beside the Buddist Temple, an interesting example of different religions getting on with each other. Magnificent setting for both and the olive trees were so reminiscent of Palestine.
