The hubby and I went on a whim. Definitely a great place to visit. The grounds were beautiful but so very quiet, very peaceful. We had a guided tour by a monk on the Palace. Then a quarter mile down the road is the commune where the people live in this community, as well having a beautiful temple.

We ate in the cafeteria. We had no clue what we ate, but it was good.
