The White Horse temple was beautiful we enjoyed a sweltering bus journey just to stroke the white horse and meet the Monks who lived there and we weren't disappointed - they even had a temple which housed magic weapons! After an afternoon of wondering around we pretty much decided that we could draw a line under temples and move on from our fleeting fascination - dont worry Mum & Dad after watching 1 lady monk doing sliding squats (apparently she will do this for 2 or more years) we decided it might not be for us.
Longman Caves are just like the previous caves we saw but in a riverside setting with a temple nestled in the forest and about 5 times bigger. If you ever get the chance to go please make these part of your journey - enjoy the pictures.
