I went to this temple on Sunday (23-12-2007) afternoon. Not many peoples there except some tourists. I found out this temple is different from others, because it's not a huge in size but it's famous of the historical values and also not much to explore.

Only the main hall and the both side doors are access to the small area which displays all the history of this chronicle temple.
