  • Nice Temple. The art was somewhat "simple", I have seen a lot more detailed. Views are great. And fun thing you can buy fireworks they light in a special "fireplace" to chase the bad spirits :-)
  • Beautiful buildings and history. Very tranquil. Wear appropriate clothing. Stones very hot outside when you take shoes off so recommended you wear socks. These are allowed in the temple.
