I absolutely loved this temple, and found watching the worshippers fascinating. If they had provided seats or a bench to sit on, I would have spent more time inside. This is really a special place.

The Buddha was a sight to behold. It costs money to take photos inside and you will be watched like a hawk if you do but great for a very quick visit.

Amazing large central Buddhist statue centered in a complex of older buildings. Right in the heart of UB, easy walk from most hotels.

Amazing giant statue when you walk into the monastery. It's good be quiet in this place because there is a lot of praying going on. Great to be able to visit.
