Inside the temple is a sitting Buddha statue.
Our guide, Rabbit, gave us these yellow strings which he got from inside the temple. He said that it will bring us luck.

|I still keep this inside my bag :)|
Ouside is another temple adorned by what seemed to be Chinese embellishments. I had no intention of going in at first but then Rabbit told me the history of the temple. He said that there was a Chinese Princess who fell in love with a Thai Prince a long time ago. Just like Romeo and Juliet's story of miscommunication, she thought that her Prince had died and she committed suicide. It was a myth that since she was not able to find her love, she favors and helps those who are in search of their own. Upon hearing that, I immediately decided to enter the temple and ask for help from the princess to help me in my very unlucky love life. No harm in doing it anyway. *laughs*
The original image of the Prince and Princess is placed on the second floor of the temple but they also created a larger replica below.
|I don't know what the vault is for.|
|Original image. I fervently pray that love comes my way soon.|
Dear Princess, I really hope that you collaborate with Jesus so that my love life gets better soon. *shuts eye and crosses fingers*
