    Must come here, the story is very interesting to hear, and walking through feels like going back in time, must see the mosque in there too, behind they also sell paintings

    Waste of time - Consists of 5 rooms and 3 old pools with a bit of water and a lot of seagrass inside. Our English speaking guide was barely understandable but tried to sell way overpriced postcards.

    Get a guide to bring you around and tell you the history. Explore the area, find little shops in Lorong Lukisan.

    Entrance is cheap but there's nothing much to explore really. Better to go to the other temples outside the city.
