Nice little operating Buddhist temple. Worth a quick visit but. It much more than that. If you’ve seen large temples in China or Korea, not too interesting

Not much to see and do. The place has a lot of trees but that's basically it. Adjacent to it, there's a lot of souvenir shops which we spent more time than the intended attraction. No fees.

Interesting history. Test done in a tour over the guide in order to be meaningful. Some stair-climbing involved.

Having travelled up the ‘Perfume’ river to the Pagoda, we were greeted by seem steep steps but they were well worth the climb. The Pagoda was well maintained and worth the visit.
