A big place to walk and very impressive with the deities carvings. It was filled with tourists but once inside the monastery, it's real quiet, cool and calm place.
The monastery is new so it is very modern inside, it's more impressive from the outside. The place is crowded with tourists, with a few large statues and bland decor it won't really give you a wow factor.

This monastery is absolutely huge and very modern. You are able to organise a guide from the monastery to share information with you. They have an english speaking guide also who was available when we arrived. It was very interesting to understand the different parts of the halls. The museum is also worth a visit even if only for peace... More
A pity though I did not have the time to view the musuem but the energy there is positive with a soul cleansing feel.
