In fact, the reclining Buddha is on a scale comparable to the one in Bangkok. Apart from the Buddha, the temple consists of multiple buildings spread around the grounds and it is definitely recommended to see everything, also for the views from the pagoda

This huge temple grounds are just that- huge, but lacking in beauty and charm. I will definitely keep It on my 'repeat liar's to see the progress in a few years.
