Panoramic lime stone cave turned into temple of worshippers as well as recreational park (jogging and foot reflexology track, fish pond). The park is on the other side of the mountain, so visitor must pass through the cave. A very relaxing views of greenery embedded into the million old lime stone mountain. Landscaping, toilets and cleanliness nicely managed by private group.
We went here based on the reviews and we were not disappointed. From the time we entered until we left we were awestruck. The religious features and the natural structures were so beautiful. You can spend a lot of time here looking around at all the features. Unfortunately the day we went the gardens were closed for "blasting", but we could look out over them from the stairs to the cave. It was still beautiful to look at. I would highly recommend it and would love to go back and look more, especially when the gardens are open.
