  • Pleasantly surprise by the entry charges. But it is definitely worth paying. Never had such pleasant experience since a long long time. Thousand Buddha Cave still give me goosebumps thinking about it.

Sure, the buildings are replicates of older buildings that may have existed somewhere and that no longer exist, but that does not lessen the impressiveness of the buildings in the complex. Amazing craftsmanship. Worth a visit, and the price to get in - in my opinion.
