  • A bright Buddhist temple. Very interestingly done. The feeling of some mix of different religions in the artistic performance. If you pass, be sure to check.

  • The temple is only 70 years old, but is worth a visit. The former church of the Dutch is used. A very friendly monk and meditation teacher shows us the facility and spoke good German. Highly recommended. Attention... the pictures of the great lying Buddha do not belong here.
