The temple is situated right in the middle of the lake. Its only a short boat ride away. You can take a round trip ride or one way ride which drops you at the other end of the lake. There is a restaurant too.

We paddled to the island by a boat we rented and were there for about 15 minutes. You can buy food to feed the fish and go around the temple. It is well maintained.
