This space is stunning during the sunset. It is also a deeply energetic place. I encountered a simple understanding of Dukkha as I sat in the prayer room. This place is worth a visit for both external beauty and internal calmness. Do remember to donate and contribute to the maintenance of the space.
Visited: Sep 5, 2018. We visited this place on a bright sunny morning. There were very few visitors at this time.Maybe this place is more beautiful in the evenings. The views of the ocean from this pagoda are breathtaking. It was indeed very quiet and peaceful here. God willing, wish to visit this place sometime again.
Date of visit- 5th September 2018 Visited this place in the morning and it was sunny, the views were fantastic from here. The striking white pagoda with ocean backdrop is indeed soothing and calming. Since there was no crowd we took our time and explored the place at leisure while enjoying the scenic views.
A small temple near the jungle beach. Good place to go and relax your mind. Have a good view of the sea.
Very nice temple to worship and observe sea far away. Ground is getting pretty hot during noon hours so you will have to run instead of walking since you have to take off your footwear around temple area. Parking is available for nearly 10 vehicles. You don't have to pay for anything such as tickets. You can donate some money to the temple if you like.
