  • There is no admission fee. When you keep your shoes, you just have to mark a little castle. We made stairs in a place with a foot to be able to take the appearance of the Buddha statues and the Buddhas and Buddha in the large and large Buddha

  • We were disappointed as this was covered for re painting, though we had some glimpses through the screening. We went with a guide, which was useful as he explained things to us.  more »
