Was part of a half day tour. Was well worth the stop. Beautiful buildings, we were also lucky enough to watch 2 different Chinese couples taking their wedding photos here.

Lovely visit. Beautiful Temples. Small market near by. Small stall for refreshments. Beautiful river full of carp fish. A cool place to sit. Across the road a lovely air con cafe serving food drinks and small gift shop. Park next to it with large lake.

Going to visit the temples was a beautiful look at the Buddhist culture. We enjoyed watching people pray and we liked hiking up the stairs for the views. The kids enjoyed it, too. Only downside was that it was so crowded.

Hi Iam not sure on the timing however I saw people praying but one can do meditation on the second floor. The place is very crowded through the day and early morning would be the best time.
