  • One of the very nice historical place that worth to visit. The temple compound is very big. Best to visit during year end as the weather is not so hot. The temple consists of 4 sections: 1) The big Budda laying in sleeping position in the ruin chapel. 2) The main chapel 3) The main pagoda 4) The yard at the back of the pagoda Tourist is recommended to give respect to the place and local culture when visit. Visitors also can pray for your own good luck.
  • Amazing place even though there were lots of people. This day was quite cool weather and that made it so chill to sit in the shade and enjoy. Last time I was here is it crazy hot. Really beautiful energy here.
