“Mossy lined path & quiet temple”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

This is an easy temple to get to from the station. The long stone path is flanked on both sides by trees in mossy beds. The temple can be viewed from the gate. It is small but set in a beautifully kept garden. Picture perfect! I like this temple because it is quieter than the busy major sites. You can extend the walk along a path up past the left side of the temple to the burial area.
