Quite surprisingly it's very relaxing to visit this little temple. Temple in the middle of an island surrounded by lake, and you have to get into the island by bamboo rafting ... Very nice view and surroundings ...

The place is not that special, but worth a visit if you're in Garut. The entrance is Rp 5.000, but you have to pay another Rp 4.000 to use the raft if you want to see the temple.
