I think people NEED to research this place before making comments. It will always be under construction. So don't complain if people are working on it, when you visit. The entire place is made without a single nail (wooden nails) and it is continually being added to and maintained in order to help represent what it's creators vision was (who is now deceased, but his fortune carries the work on). It is so much more than simply a giant wooden temple. Obviously those who visit are amazed by the level of detail in its craftsmanship. But it has a journey and a destination... One well worth looking up, it's a great story and really a modern wonder. 🙏🤗❤️
Amazing spot to see. if you like to see some of the best wood crafts, don't miss it. We had a beautiful lunch (with a really good price). Temple is fantastic and the place feels strange but nice (all statues on the roofs are bend and look at you instead of looking to the horizon as we usually see in churches). I think the best time to go there is around 1500, so you can see a nice traditional performance at 1530 in the temples yard. Do forget your water bottle too.
