  • Best place to chill, relax, and unwind... whenever you reach the cave opening, the obvious air currents blowing from inside will blow you away. 😂 The park inside is quite attractive, but nothing much. If you're a jogger, it's a good choice. If you're not, just strolling around is good enough.

  • Nice tourist place. You will find a temple built inside a cave. You even will find a small lake when you go through to the end of the cave.

  • A windy cave with Buddha statues for worship and for sightseeing. The cave also have stalactites that are around for years and a wide back garden with ponds, monkeys and geese which leave nature lovers in wonder.

  • Been here 3 years ago and it is the same even today. Beautiful sight (except for the marble mining plant a few km away). Added new Arhat/Luohan statues. If they have better funding, hope to incorporate interactive panels to learn history of the cave, temple, and park.

  • This temple in the cave is popular at the later years. Should be the best in the area. Should visit. You will want to go back again.
