The temple is rather new. Not much history but living contemporary Buddhism. People are very friendly. No entrance fee and you get three incense sticks and a bowl of noodle soup for free. Of course, a small donation should be given.

Authentic temple full of people worshipping. Beautiful surroundings and scenery. Will not find a place like this anywhere else. Difficult to fit it all in one day. Great walk with friends
