This monastery is well worth a visit, but it may be best to visit early morning or late afternoon. When we visited about 11am it was very busy. We had no choice on our arrival time, unfortunately.

Wonderful monastery. But they need to have some security folks to tell visiors to maintain silence. We felt there was too much noise inside the Buddhist Vihara. The main shrine was being renovated and was closed to public
