  • Really peaceful temple in the middle of the city. It’s open for public meditation a few times a week- we went on a Monday at 6pm but there were 3/4 other times it was also available throughout the week. Unfortunately, there was no monk to guide us through our session which was slightly disappointing but the overall ambiance is very peaceful.
  • If you want a bit of peace to pray and meditate this is the place!! Quick tuk tuk ride from centre near to Independence Monument. Friendly monks present and an almost empty temple. Nice grounds as well! Easy walk through park to Royal Palace.
