You can see history through your vision. If you believe in superstition, this temple is perfect! Recommend to wear comfortable shoes because you have to walk a lot

For adults this is an interesting place to visit to see the traditional and cultural aspects. However it is not so great fro the teenagers who became a little bored. Recommended for a ‘quick visit’ only.

This is located by the harbor and about 20 min walk from Ruins of St. Paul. Nothing exciting here, it is a temple for worship. It is not too large or grand so nothing much to see other than a temple. It has its historical...More
