  • A Buddhist temple which is so artistic and has some huge place to pray. When we got in, I felt like I was in China. There's some food but only few that open. They have an interesting dessert soup from rice flour. It was disappoint when they told us that we can see the great historical ship, because that ship doesn't look as great as the temple. We expected a good and artistic ship. But it's a good place, may be need to plant some more trees so it doesn't feel so sunny when we are going around.
  • A significantly beautiful temple, however the tickets have different prices IDR 10 K and 25K, you can either take pictures from the yard or enter the temple with the higher price. Overall 10K is recommended as it is worth with the view. Unless you'd like to enjoy the nuances inside the temple. Very recommended
