This is a nice place for photography, this is the big pagoda in town. There is a chance to take photography with the Chinese dress. It's better to visit in the morning or afternoon when it is not so hot.

It's quite nice to visit, especially the temples, which is divided by a fence and a water stream from the rest of the complex. The temples have nice wood carving and also the stone relief with the history is fascinating.
