A beautiful working temple, this temple is dedicated to the spirit of dogs, and thus has some dog statuary around. The temple includes a museum of sorts, which includes a hodge-podge of artifacts.

I love the elegant roof and the beautiful architecture of this small temple (relative to some massive ones). The museum is rich in artefacts. It is on the street full of chic cafes, shops and old houses well preserved.
