Not only does this place house a large sitting Buddha statue donning royal regalia, it also depicts realistic images of the karmic cycle including a scene showing how hell would look like.

We gave this place a short visit after seeing the Reclining Buddha. There's a massive Buddha on the inside that's worth a look. We spent about 30 minutes here and that was about enough.
