Our visit to the Temple was OK. An impressive building, some statues outside and some interesting artefacts inside but not a lot more to say about it . . . .
The temple is small but stands very well in the square, it is suprisingly small inside. It is very well preserved given its age. It is brilliant to sit in a cafe in the square and admire the temple whilst sipping coffee....
