Greetings CBJO and Anna, Thanks so much for visiting the Silver Pavilion Temple and commenting. The Silver Pavilion was under renovation, but the rest of the temple grounds were spectacular. The monks specialize in growing different types of moss in the shade of their forest.

Greetings Nikos, Thanks for visiting and commenting. This is one of the first buildings you see as you enter and it is in very good condition. Very well taken care of. The Silver Pavilion is under renovation and will soon be perfect again. Then the sand, pool and pavilion will all compliment each other once again.
