This place is amazing! I have never been anywhere so different from my home country. Could you recommend other places similar to this temple?
Sure. I recommend a place near the mountain. It is as peaceful as this place. They are old but has a diverse past. Good thing the locals preserved these places quite well.

They really did a great job in preserving this place. Look at this temple! It is so fascinating! Thank you for bringing me to this place.
No problem, Ron. Before we enter the temple, just make sure to remove your shoes.

Sure. I wonder why it is so quiet here in the temple, despite being crowded.
Good observation. People are meditating so noise is strictly prohibited. Even children are advised to be quiet and respectful here.
