  • It was an interesting visit, they explain the whole process of making the golden leaves with which the Buddhas cover in the offerings. They place leaves between the pages of a book and beat it to very thin, then they are placed in small sachets that are sold in the temples. It is very laborious and delicate by the hours that a person hits the book and the women who in a separate room manipulate the small pictures. There's a little shop of things made with gold leaf.

  • Nice to see how those golden leafs that are sold all over SE Asia are made. I wonder if it is still the same procedure or if it’s just a show. Anyway, nice exit through gift shop where you can buy water with gold in it. Makes you poop gold! Must have!
  • The main aim is for selling souvenirs in high price by setting up with traditional art of gold leaf production.Products are not really made by them.They bought from low cost suppliers and make a King Galon label on it. LOL!
