Lots of steps to get up to the Buddha cave and well worth it. Incredable view from the top of the monastery. Well preserved historic site of the cave. Do take a moment to look into the main prayer hall. Truly fantastic.

This monastery / temple allows visitors to attend their evening service. The service is conducted by monks with horns and drums. Truly an amazing experience. During service tea and donuts shaped cakes are also served to visitors.
