    Upgrade your 5 senses

    If you catch a glimpse of beauty like this, can you pass it by?

    Once you enter the gate, you notice an incense aroma around main building. A sign board says, "Please take off your shoes" so that you feel the wooden floor better. Beside the building, there is a small Zen-garden in silence. A bamboo seesaw makes a sound in a stone wash basin. Then breathe deeply.

    Your five senses would be purified until the time you leave the temple.
