“Nice to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

It was part of our tour to see this place, and sure, it was impressive given its age and history, but we literally spent 20 minutes and there was nothing else to do - as you cant go in, only photo it and the surrounding area. Don't expect to be there long.

“Not much to see, night is good, monks too”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Its a pagoda, yeah with history. Everything else around it is standard, there is one room right near the pagoda covered in gold that is a sight.

There are monks, I'm not sure when they have prayers, but hopefully you will be there for one, the sound of the chanting is mesmerizing.

“Quite imposing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Situated in a park in the city, it is an imposing structure. You have to marvel at the building considering it was built hundreds of years ago.

“Nice visit not far from city center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Climb up and enjoy the view! Although the windows are quite small.
And the nice fountain show in front of it as well.

“Big Pagoda”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

The story is more intriguing than the pagoda. This is a quick visit. No much to see. There is a Small Wild Goose Pagoda also.
