Emon Ahmed visited at: 2019-01-06

We found utmost pleasure visiting this historical religious place. You can have mountain view from the top. The monastery will serve you with knowledge of Buddhism and local history & tradition. The architecture is eye-catching but the place is crowdy & hence not so clean!
