A nice temple on a small hill. It was autumn and my toddler loved walking on the fallen leaves. As for the 1 hour transit tour: It's 20 minutes to and from the airport. You'll have 15-20 minutes to spend here. Recommended for short layovers.

Can't complain it's free and it is a small little temple near the airport. Worthwhile if you have a few hours to spare and Beats seating in a terminal waiting

Cute little place in the hills with a solemn atmosphere. The monks were there and also a few people chanting. Very surreal. Wish there was more time but the tour allowed for only 10 minutes stay.

Came here for an hour tour from a long layover in the airport. Place is very quiet and solemn. Perfect place to meditate as it is located in the mountains and away from the metropolitan. It also has the 1,300 year old Zelcova Tree! I...More
