It's a shame that such temple is not well known or visited. The huge statue of Sitting Buddha is something admire and watch. You've got to admire it at first sight. You should pay Tumpat a visit and tour through its many temples.

Everything there was amazing - the statue, the decoration at the entrance, the interior, the surrounding structures, etc. So many different things to see and wonder about. What a pity no one around to explain as my local guide was ignorant of all of that....More
