Walk with your guide through the stunning temple grounds and take a look at the architectural features of the complex, replete with garden paths and gilded spires. Once inside the pagoda, take a seat on the floor in front of a row of Buddhist monks who sit in saffron robes. Listen as the monks chant prayers in Pali, the language of early Buddhist scriptures.
