This temple is mostly visited by locals. Its walkable distance from the bus stand. The main vihara has the reclining Buddha in it and there are severa smaller temples surrounding it. Very quite and serene.

Naga Viharaya is less known and it is a little inside but a very calm and quiet monastry with many monks and you get a sense of calmness and relaxation when you go around.

Have to drive bit from beach. This is a calm and a religious place / temple. Naga Vihara means Cobra Temple and the name arrives from early legends. But this is a really relaxation place for mind and soul!!

Walking around this place was really great and a nice way to calm down and of course learn a bit more about the culture.

If you don't like crowded places and you want to enjoy autenthic buddhist temple - this is a place for you. It is very small temple with nice energy, colorful and kid monks living there. Free entry.

Quiet place with actual monks wandering around. Not tourist-heavy area - when we visited it with my wife we were alone there. Kauchuk trees plantation is also a good addition and one more reason to visit this place. If you want to touch a local...More

We stayed very close and visited this temple at random, in the evening. Neither prayers no monks, for the first glance this monastery looked abandoned. Good to relax from noise and explore a real rural Buddhist temple..
