We visited this temple on a Sunday afternoon. We used a combination of subway and public bus and it took us a while to get there. One good thing is that the buses announce the stop and it was easy to identify the bus stop...More

One of the nicest temples I have been, not just because of the architecture of the temple but also the nature landscape around the temple. There isn't much to do here but it's still quite worth a visit if you enjoy architecture.

The bus 181 takes you there. If you do not have a bus stop with that number take 100 - 101 or any other bus which can take to the stop. Once you reach to the place one must walk about a mile to get to the entrance of the... More

I'd also recommend the City Bus has 3 or 4 routes and take you to many spots along the way - hop on hop off. It's about 12,000 wan for the day ticket.
