  • Very interesting monastery in terms of location and the way it has been built. Really well maintained too. Would def recommend to visit
  • Very beautiful monastery. Has a number of temples inside with pretty paintings on the walls. Very nicely organised. Shouldn't miss. Will take about half an hour to 45 minutes to visit. Closes at 6 pm.
