Many of the temples have lifelike replicas of revered monks; this is an actual monk whose body has failed to decompose normally. Interesting roadside temple with blessings from monks on site.

A mummified monk wearing sunglasses, something you don't see every day back home. Honestly, though, if this is not part of an all-day tour, don't bother. Nothing much else to see here, and is only popular because of the number of bored tourists (such as myself) taking an tour to fill in the daytime hours.

The history was very interesting although it was quite bizarre to see the monk propped up wearing sunglasses. This completely diluted the experience for us as our thoughts were mainly on how bizarre this was rather than focusing on the background and history.
The view of the structure from the side is also good.

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.
