    End of the (little) road

    Pay wave

    Turn left when you come out of this alley.

    Follow the road as it curves to the right.

    (4 second silence)

    Up ahead to your left are two beautiful old temples with red roofs. There isn't much info to be found about them, but as far as I can tell, they were essentially abandoned when the new, bigger temple was built, and never recovered. It's a shame, because they're lovely - I especially like their distinctive curved base, which makes them look like boats.

    A special note for photographers; it’s completely hidden from view, but if you walk around to the back of the first temple, you’ll be greeted by a beautiful gold buddha statue at the back door that makes for an excellent photo.

    Once you’re done with that, keep following the road.
