We spent an hour fascinated by all the colours and statues. The signs explaining each statue was fair. The gardens were lovely and well worth the time to walk about. I wish the poor men begging would not be within the temples grounds.

We stayed just down the road from this and nearly missed going in as it was always there, so pleased we didn't! It is a really lovely temple with a giant lying Buddha, well worth spending time having a wander and there is another temple...More

Unlike the overcrowded Thai temple across the road, this Burmese temple is quiet, with pleasant gardens, pavilions and walkways, and many interesting sights. There are stupas and pavilions in the Burmese style, a pond with statues and (live) turtles, a slightly nutty 'basin' fountain with...More

Two different temples opposite each other. This one is Burmese, so it is good to compare them. There are a few beggers here though.

Beautiful carvings and lots of gold, very interesting and lovely grounds. Well worth a visit and opposite another great temple across the road. All free to visit and good to soak up the atmosphere. Everyone smiling, just be respectful of devotees, as always.

No shoes, including socks, allowed in the temple. Being a religious building, sensible clothes are suggested, as a sign of respect. This means revealing clothes should be avoided.
