Visit here every year. Very simple to find as its the most amazing building on the hillside. Staff are helpful without being intrusive, the inside of the temple is stunning and you can peacefully reflect on the true meaning of life.

Combined my visit to the butterfly park to take a look at this place. A lovely budhist temple with commanding views over the coast. Entrance is free and well worth spending a few minutes having a look around.

Well, the monument as shown on the picture is accessible 24 hours a day, directly off the main road. Easy to get to. However, there are ruins behind it and the I believe are only open for set timings. Hope above helps?
