I have visited this temple a few times and i think its lovely. A huge Buddah is the first thing you see when approaching. It is allways a busy place with temple goers arriving with alms etc. Just before the temple is a busy fruit market where you can buy fruit and flowers as offerings. Great for some good photos. Looking around the temple is great with its decorated tree. Behind the temple is the buddhist students living quaters and school and they really dont mind you wandering in and seeing the temples 2 elephants. Just a really nice place...

Liked the Giant Buddha Statue. Disliked very much the commercialization of the temple. Quite contrast to the Buddhists principles a lot of prominence is given for 'Devala' for worshiping numerous Gods. There were many stations for collecting money from the people compared to the area of worship. even the elephant is used as a source of income
