Standing at the summit of the rock you’ll be able to enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of the Hantane mountain range which cushions the harsh exterior of the rock outcrops!

The inner shrine room of the temple has been adorned with beautiful floral designs and exquisite paintings. You’ll find that seated at the centre of the inner shrine room an enormous seated image of the Lord Buddha.
