Nice enough but the scenery is the real show here. There are plenty of other more interesting temples in other areas so don’t spend a lot of time at this one. Get outdoors.

Peaceful temple not too far from the bus stop. There is a small shop next to temple which you can get water / snacks if you need any. Not a huge selection but sufficient. And the view from the bottom of mountains is great too!

After completing the Kora I came here and was offered by a monk some tea and bread. The place is really peaceful in the winter, and full of spiritual mystery. This video shows it all: youtu.be/Kc9tMEfcv9E
