We have been there short after the raining season so the walk over the big water reservoir was already interesting. The temple itself was flooded so we couldn't go inside, but it was very impressive to see the architecture from the outside. Might come back...More

There is not much to see in this temple. Sorrounded by water. Walking in the long wooden path/bridge is a nice experience. Challenging when its hot and windy. Take a picture in the middle of the wooden path/bridge.

it is not worth it if we compare with the effort how to get there. we must walk away on the long narrow wood bridge, for seeing a very small temple which look like a small pond. I can't explain more.

This shrine is set amongst pools. It is small but serene. The highlight, however, was crossing a long foot bridge to get to the shrine. It was surrounded by water and sunken, decaying trees. Frogs called out all the way along, and the jungle was...More

If you are dropped off in the car park, then it's about 15 minutes across the causeway. It's definitely worth going to and spending some time there. The view across the channel is wonderful
