What a cool temple! First, it is really in the middle of the city. It goes from bustling city to a sacred (but still very bustling) temple. The shrine was crazy busy in the rain, and also crazy busy on the weekend (obviously).
|PS I love this photo!|
On my second visit, Chariti and I were actually approached by five university students who wanted to practice their English. They were part of their university's English club who occasionally goes to the temple to practice.
It was great because I was able to get all my questions answered from the day before...including where the sandals of the gods were. As you can see in the picture below, I am not sure why I could not find them on Friday.
Another question: where was the big pagoda? It turns out that was under construction, so I do not feel so bad about missing that one!
Once you got past the main temple, though, there was this small garden on the side. It was so peaceful in the middle of the city. I loved it. It had so many nooks and crannies.
|These statues in red symbolizes children who had passed away. You could see them throughout the city at the different shrines|
The students also told me about the holy smoke, which if it touches the part of you that is hurt, it cures it.
I must have the look though as I was approached by someone else who wanted to practice their English tour guide! It was such a wonderful visit. As I said, solidly visited twice. It was a must-stop.
