It is like the Lourdes, Fatima, or any other so called religious (are they?) Destinations created for the sole reason of making good money from tourists offering nothing in return. The place lacks any cultural aspects of Buddhism apart some monks going around with the...More

Could have spent a whole day there. 7km all round to walk but we opted for the trains that stop at each point. It was a very hot day and lots of tourists. Amazing statue of Kuan Yin Buddha and beautiful garden settings.
