This place has a great and calm atmosphere. There aren't any tourists at all, the only distraction from the piece is a kindergarten, but it was more cute than bothering. There is no entrance fee.

I visited the temple when cycling from Saigon to Angkor Wat and it blows your mind. It combines the stories from several major religions and has a French writer (victor hugo) as one of its principals. Definitely worth further investigation

Since the island isn't that old, temple is relatively new and has no major historic importance. Looked nice, named after a folk hero and the folk hero story is told there in English too, so that was nice. Was worth the quick stop!

Must be there at noon when praying. It is most impressive.the temple itself is very special, but when the people are inside, its awesome. they don't mind photos at all. Respect for the praying is key.

Right near the night markets, harbour & jetty so you can pop in before sunrise. Only takes a few minutes but it's nice to see the different sacred places for different religions.
