A very serene place to meditate for a few minutes. The temple has a vessel containing water where you need to make bubbles. If bubbles come up the water, your prayers shall be answered is what is the belief.

Well, its a temple. Not too large and a good place to stop for 20 minutes or so and poke around. Some interesting alcoves and qutie a variety of incense burning throughout.

It is worth a visit to observe and use all your senses to appreciate the cultural significance of the building itself and just as imortantly the believers actions in creating thev awe and mystery using copious amounts of incense.
