Take time to wander through all the buildings and enjoy the peace. We took lots of pictures and spoke to the very friendly monks.

What a beautiful Temple! Too bad I had only 30 minutes there and could not learn much in details. Will certainly come back!

Easy to walk to from town. Worth a look round. Take a scarf to cover your shoulders or rent one at the entrance.
