  • This three story golden pagoda was built in the 12 century. Try searching with both the names on Google. A number of gemstones and beautiful carvings adorn the walls of this temple.  more »
  • The entrance to the temple is not big. The front of the two singha-shaped sides will have a beautiful entrance door. The magical side is beautiful, so it's a good fortune to worship the Buddha. To take a picture of a metallic monkey around the temple, spin the Wheel of Faith (long-awaited) and capture Nepalese girls who take care of the tourists. The Buddha has walked up on the 2nd floor to a group of Nepalese people to sit in the top of the top with the wheel of great faith. Feel the faith in the temple.
