  • Was just outside as there were some renovations, but it's more than enough. Really magnificent building. Probably one of the largest I've ever seen. Was surprised it was finished (outside) only 30 years ago. Well worth the visit.
  • I visited this big temple in February and March, 2019. The temple was under construction. But I could see the big room under the ground. The room was big and gorgeous. The route for the big room was a little bit complicated. There was no signboard. When I visited, not so many tourists. It is worth to visited here, I think. I recommend you visiting here. Oh, one guy talked me friendly and tried to sell postcards. Be careful. Not inside the temple. The guy was around the temple outside the park.
