Save your time, download a picture. This is a mummified munk in a small average temple - and it's nothing special at all (except for the obvious fact that there is a mummified monk in a glass box). If you want to see mummies go...More

It's a small place, with a mumified monk that wear sunglasses. You can also donate sunglasses to him. Ok to have seen him, but would not plan a hole trip just to go there. Visit the place as a stop on a longer trip.
