Place is very nice with natural spring water flowing. You see lots of people Q to bathe in the spring water as a ritual for blessing. So this is something special about this temple

Entrance fees is 50k, be aware with the vendors inside they will ask you to try a banana for free or leeches then they will push you to buy them and they won't go away until you buy something.

You don’t need to book anything through a tour group. There is a Kiosk outside the temple to buy ticket. You need someone (driver) to get you there, but fix with him the transportation cost.
