This place has live pit vipers hanging just above your head. I could've reached out and touched them very easily. Supposedly, the incense burned throughout the day makes them sleepy. They people bring offerings, usually eggs, to the snakes. At night, the incense stop burning and the snakes wake up and eat the eggs. The snakes are free to move wherever they want. They did appear to be rather lifeless, but I still felt the need to move slowly and watch where I was walking. They also breed snakes in the garden out back. This was also a little unnerving. The snakes are in a pit with trees for them to rest in. Many of the trees overhang the enclosure, as in right where I was standing. I was constantly looking for snakes in the trees. You can have your picture taken for about 30 ringgits with a python and a defanged pit viper. I did that and felt pretty safe. However, in the room where everyone is focused on the snakes people are getting their pictures with, fail to realize that there are poisonous pit vipers just over their heads. You have to pay attention at this temple and be aware of where you are walking and what is over your head. Other than the uniqueness of the snakes, this temple is not worth driving out of your way to see. There are many others that are far more interesting.
