What travelers say:

Many locals would wrap coins around the bodhi tree with strips, make wishes to bodhi and bodhisattva, and promise to do so with flowers and other offerings, and change coins.

Additional Information

Introduction

The temple has been established for more than 120 years. It is a well-crafted building that combines the architectural features of Sri Lanka, Thailand, India and China. The entrance to the temple is quite shocking. There are two statues of Guan Gong playing a big knife, and there is a living elephant next to it. The Buddha statues in the temples are a collection of Buddha statues from various Asian countries. The interior of the temple is not large. Several rooms are connected together and full of various treasures. There are hundreds of statues of Buddhas and statues. The posture is strange.
