Once you take the walk up to the temple, you get to really appreciate the wonders of nature that god created. The setting is very serene and brings you into contact with God. There are a lot of monkeys along the track path and indeed at the temple - keep your distance, and so will they, makes the walk a bit more interesting and at times entertaining. Good hike up the hill, take good shoes and wear light clothes - it can get pretty hot.
