check time before you go, as they are closed a lot of the day. We got there, but could not go inside. The view from parking lot was gorgeous.

The temple was closed when we visited on a Tuesday in June. Not sure if this is the case from now on.

This is a great place to visit with the butterfly park. The temple is small but talk with the guide inside who can tell you more. Also the view from the hill is stunning.
