Not always available for viewing if other ceremonies occurring

Awesome to view and consider the age and passing of monks who have left their mark. Need to be able to climb stairs although none of them are long staircases.

This is serious. To see 40.000 of kung fu, teakwondo and other martial arts practisioners in place, is not easy elsewhere in the world. These kids get up 5.00 every morning and practise till late evening.

A short walk past the Temple you come across the Pagoda Forest, where past Temple Dignitaries have passed away. The taller the tower the more higher the status of the individual whom passed away.

We were here by Sept 2015. We have to wait outside the theater for 20 min before the show started. Everyone pushing and rushing each other when going inside in order to get a good view seat. The show time is 30 min. There was a game that audiences were invited to the stage to learn Kungfu from the monks,... More

If the Martial Arts hall refers to the kung fu show inside the hall inside the monastery, then I wish somebody would have adviced me to skip it. The show is very short, it is very crowded and it mostly comprises of volunteer spectators trying to do kung fu... it's more of an audience participation comedy activity and definitely not... More
