We stumbled on this Shrine, which was beautiful. Bright colours, and well kept. There is apparently a market there, but we missed it. I was actually glad, the peacefulness of this Shrine would have been destroyed. Nice walk.

A safe area to walk around during the day or night. Found few people around during both times but very safe. Look at the lamps as you walk in with copper roofs, they look very nice at night when illuminated.

Worth a visit if you are nearby. This little shrine is tucked in between large buildings and you might miss it if you aren't watching for it

It's nice and pretty. Nothing special. If you pass by, make sure you pay a little visit. But not worth going out of your way to visit.
