  • This is a very intricate statute that you can spend a long time looking at it. Plenty of opportunity for photography.  more »
  • A bit different from another Buddha site plus feeding the catfish is entertaining. Several different sections to walk around plus food and market stalls  more »

  • Interesting temple. Filled with tourists though. Recommend visiting early in the morning to avoid. Worth buying some of the fish food on sale. So many fish.
  • Very large beautiful temple complex, nicely built and preserved. Feeding the fishes in the lake was great experience for kids. We did long stroll around all three huge statues and studied the buddha life story in the middle temple. Toilets are clean, plenty of parking space. You can buy food for fish there locally.
