  • If you visit here expect to be very respectful of their rules. You have to be quiet and they do not allow any photography or video. Still very lovely and beautiful.
  • I am a Buddhist but I really like this place. Very very clean and calm. The security guard is super friendly and so helpful. We cannot take pictures of the gods inside but it's fine.
