The concept of how the universities were run is interesting. there are no signs in English so consider getting a guide (additional fees). Its one of the few places in the old town (actually its a little out of old town) that is peaceful, and tranquil.
We noticed a few people missed the last section of the temple as there are no clear signs. Go around to the end and the last section is really very nice. Also note the 'bonsai' trees along the way. If you look carefully there are small houses or miniature boats or people there.
Good for 2hrs.
