Best temple in Pagoda. Nice quiet area away from the busy streets. It isn't a big complex, but good for an hour to walk around and sit in the silence. Doesn't compare to some of the bigger buddhist areas in China/Asia, but still interesting.

Went with a guide so got lots of interesting facts about the Temple and the area. Did not climb the tower for the views as repairs were being done on our visit.

This place is very well maintained and ornate. We used to be able to climb up the pagoda but it is now locked. If you have the time, it is worth a visit.
