The place is soooo big and well manage. They said it is a temple, but the profesional and modern touch to make the people feel comfortable is so great. And the place was build to honor the Buddha relic. What a high devotion to make.

It is a top notch, well designed museum, whether you are a Buddhist or not. The facilities are air conditioned, the view is great, and the exhibits very well designed. A bit out of the way, but if you're in the area, worth seeing.
