This free temple had so much artwork that I didn't know where to look first. A local taxi driver showed us around and explained some of the displays. He also took us up to the top of the back building. There are several buildings here and the tallest has a lift so you can easily reach the third floor and look out over the area. It is also right across the road from the sleeping Buddha temple. That makes it doubly worth the trip.

Went here mainly as visited reclining Buddha temple opposite. Had read reviews suggesting not very interesting but actually thought it was a beautiful and peaceful site. Really liked it.
