The main temple of Khong Chiam is on a hill overlooking the city. The temple grounds contain beautifully maintained gardens, as well as perplexing mountains of exceedingly gnarly tree roots.
For me, though, the main attraction is the enormous temple gong erected at one end of the car park. This steel monstrosity is about 20 metres in diameter, and has clearly just recently been repainted, and decorated with the the flags of the 11 Nations comprising the SE Asian Economic Community.
