They are renovating when we came but its still fun to see these kinds of temple. It feels like you are really in their country experiencing their culture and history. You can only go to the shrine and up to the second floor. Remember to remove your shoes or slippers. Visiting the temple is free so kindly give something if you can, plus the security guard is very accommodating.

I felt at peace here. such beauty & tranquility. The guard was really helpful although he preferred to speak with my wife rather than in English BUT I just soaked in the atmosphere & serenity.

We were greeted by the guard who toured us around, telling us where the altars are, where we can take pictures. The main altar was spacious and has shakyamuni buddha. There's a smaller altar on the 2nd floor where you can light some incense. Materials for divination are here as well. There's also a small shop where you can buy amulets, small statues, prayer beads etc. this is place for worship so proper etiquette must be observed. The atmosphere was peaceful and the tenants were friendly.

Lon Wa temple is a small Buddhist temple.The entrance is free. The guard at the entrance is very knowledgeable because he had been working there for 25 years. Take the the chance to make him as your default tour guide. Lastly, dress appropriately.

Well, we were just greatful that a nice man let us in even when the gate was already closed. A quick and respectful exploration of the temple made me wish a patient Buddhist monk would mysteriously appear and give us a private tour:)
