This is a very busy and very functional temple. The smell of incentese hangs heavily in the air. Lots of people actively praying and many people reading relious texts. A fascinatint place, well worth a visit. Don't get in the way of the devoutees!

We tried to go to fish market. But with jetlag, my friend definitely lost direction sense. But this led us to tour the wonderful streets and discovers this amazing temple. It full of harmony and peace with many people quietly sitting, strolling, listening or praying.

This large and historic temple is very popular and often crowded. If you are new to Bhuddism, you will likely appreciate the free-standing sign placards near the middle of the open courtyard that explain how worship is conducted (i.e. how to bow, in which order...More
