  • A tranquil and beautiful break from the city. The temple was quiet for a Saturday… With lovely nature sounds as you walk around. An absolute must visit if you’re into your Buddhist temples. The staff were friendly and helpful with a nice safe environment for prayer… The toilets were clean!
  • The temple gave me a sense of peace and I lost an hour or so just being inside it. It is a good place to connect to the universe. You can also broaden your knowledge of the Buddhist religion.
