        Top Tips

        This is one of the most impressive (and therefore busiest) wats in town, so be prepared to be patient for that perfect photo.
        Wear long clothing out of respect, and remember to take your shoes off before heading inside any of the buildings.
        Consider visiting and on your walk down here from central .
