Unfortunately, by the time I arrived, it was closed. However, the outside of temple is beautiful and flanked by tiger statues on each side. Hopefully, I will be able to return to see inside.

This temple is very different with other Buddha Temple in the world. If you are a Buddhist, this is a very worthy place to discover. If you not, you also should visit it because of its beautiful construction.
