  • I am very interested in Buddhism and had never gotten the chance to see a Burmese temple until I came here. It’s a temple full of history and well worth a nice walk through  more »
  • Every temple is different and this one is worth a visit. Admire the ornate workmanship that has gone into the building and all the statues etc  more »

  • Serene and tranquil. Look for the tortoises who are astonishing good at pretending to be statues. Darn things made me jump when they moved!
  • Heritage and historic. Would be nice if someone could walk you through the history and the symbolic meanings of the architecture, arts and motives
