        Top Tips

        This is one of ‘ holiest stupas. Wear long clothing out of respect, and marvel at the sheer amount of gold paint that this must have taken over the years!
        A good deal of renovation working is going on at the moment (April 2017), so expect to be unable to climb to the highest level of the stupa.
        Consider having a nose around and the reclining Buddha of as they’re right next door.
