It's quite a difference experience to visit this temple. Very beautiful and big and unlike most others that I've been to. Would recommend if you want to see something grand.

Beautiful, peaceful temple. Well worth a visit. Monks pretty friendly and helpful. Doesn't get too busy [just a handful of people when we went].

My wife loves this place, I admit that the architecture is interesting, a bit like Khymer/Hindu than you generally see around Kan.Large stone Buddha. The cave section of the temple is the most interesting in my opinion, very atmospheric
