    An opportunity to see traditional Thai dance, but be respectful of the local customs.

    Please be careful where you're holding your incense sticks towards, and try not to drop the ash on others (it'll hurt). Do wear sunglasses on windy days, don't let the smoke get into your eyes!

    They usually have live performances and it is a very active shrine. Not huge but very respected by the locals. Def check it out if you are near by

    It often features performances by resident Thai dance troupes, who are hired by worshippers in return for seeing their prayers at the shrine answered.

    The Holy Atmosphere in here so strong, see many people come for blessing. Even Good or Bad Guy, we are same, until we can find Nibbana (free from attachment).
