  • Great walk to the temple surrounded by multiple facettes of the Buddha. The temple offers a beautiful view and a nice calming atmosphere. A great getaway from the dazzling city.
  • A very nice and unique experience! The climb to the top can be a but cumbersome but definitely doable! Fascinating to see each individual Buddha on the way up. You get a really nice view of the surroundings when you reach the top. Some cute monkeys run around in the area as well.
