Had a guide and it helped to explain local customs etc. but this was a little macabre/bizarre, none the less. If you are coming past worth a quick visit. Not worth a separate trip.

This was an odd but very good experience. You have a monk who foreseen his own death and was an example of the Buddhist way. Hes been there for decades sat up with Raybans (and about 7 pairs behind him when they want him to have a change. I loved this tour and think it would make a great experience for anyone

It is interesting how well preserved the monk is even though no chemicals were use in preserve him. One of the mysteries of the earth. You can get a really good close up look at the monk.

Amazing how well preserved the monk was. It was very nice to be blessed by the real monk next to him. We left the place in good spirits and with a little bracelet for good luck.
