We actually stayed one night at this place ad enjoyed the experience. The staff is very courteous and the location is very close to the Bodhi Tree. The temple is maintained very beautifully. Great experience

This is a nice temple with meditation hall upstairs. Stopped by as it was close to our hotel; the nun and monk that greeted us were very nice. The temple has some rooms which can be used for retreats.

I was there few days ago & really enjoyed this location, just few steps from Mahabodhi temple & very quiet. They provide also 3 meals a day, basic but good. The monks are very nice & zen. I would strongly recommnad this place

We happened to be here for short time, but found this place quite calm and clean. You can spend sometime for meditation here. Located very near to Mahabodhi temple.

Its a beautiful place and full of peace. The temple is also build well and one will enjoy the architect. Its not a happening kind a place but rather a peaceful place to spend some time with ones inner soul.

This is an ok place but Thai Monastery is the best out of all of them. If you are paying short visit just see it from outside.

The very beautiful building is located a little out of theain city area but is at a very walkable distance. The temple is immediately surrounded by village life that have built much too close walls to this beautiful structure. The workers or caretakers hung around...More
