  • Very picturesque temple nearly overlooking the Perfume river Walled landscaped gardens, Could be quite a peaceful place if there were no tourists (myself included). No entrance fee, no hawkers chasing you to buy things. A few very well presented young monks walking around adding some serene ambiance to the whole experience. An enjoyable trip by Dragon Boat along the Perfume river to visit.
  • Popular place with free entry. I felt that the serenity of the place was very much disrupted by the flocks of tourists coming by buses. If only we knew to be a little more considerate of the monks who spend their lives there :)
