  • This place awoke a very calm and serene atmosphere with the temple of lord Buddha as its main highlight. The temple grounds also had a very relaxing garden that was well maintained and kept in a Japanese style with rocks and deciduous trees and the Japanese pine tree. The temple had a large main building with beautiful architecture and a long hall. The small details such as washing fountains were also given good amount of attention as they were very beautifully made. Overall the temple was a peaxefull and beautiful place
  • very nice place
