  • Awesome architecture and quite big. It's adjacent to the Sunday walking street so if you doing walking street then the temple is right their might as well give it a visit. I'm not a person who goes temple hunting so I wouldn't make a special trip just to see it but it was cool once I got there
  • Nice Temple. The art was somewhat "simple", I have seen a lot more detailed. Views are great. And fun thing you can buy fireworks they light in a special "fireplace" to chase the bad spirits :-)
