A temple in a beautiful setting. Located in the middle of a jungle. When visiting this temple, take a closer look. And protect the environment. Thanks
The place is properly renovated. It still has the historical looks. Every one should visit this place at least once in their life time.
Beautiful & historical temple. A place to calm your mind
A place to calm your mind. Recommended to go in the night. Much calmer.
Must visit place for a Buddhist. And also for any traveler can feel the calmness of this sacred place. Night time visit is recommended because of heat
