This temple is a little off the beaten track and we came across it accidentally. What a wonderful find.

I stopped off at this temple whilst walking home from walk after noticing that it was still open at around 7pm. It's a small temple with not too much to see, but is well maintained inside and is quite colourful. Certainly worth a stop if you happen to be in the area.
