A must place to visit, calm and relaxing, just goes to see what people can do when they fund this construction with donations.
Really interesting; we've seen a lot of Buddha shrines throughout Asia, and this one is special.
Was here in september 2010, many improvements have been made including the buddha being lighted @ night. It can be seen atop the mountain from many areas....beautiful!
