A Day Trip to Tanjung Sepat/Jugra/Jenjarom (2)

On the way down the hill, we stopped for this ruin.
Next on the list, is the Royal Mausoleum.

Was caught in this traffic situation.
At the gate of the mausoleum, only I was allowed because the other 2 attires were not deemed appropriate.
So I went in all by myself leaving the 2 of them eating bao while waiting.

It is striking in Golden Yellow and White.
It may be small in size, but it is very neat and in tip-top condition.

                                          They are nicely constructed and well maintain.

                                     In various sizes. I didn't go near afraid of offending.

                                                                          The royal deceased.

                                                                                    Exquisite

                                              This is bigger and some are housed under the annex.
  
We then drove towards another and the last in the list, the Istana Bandar.

                                                    A brand new mosque by the roadside.
                          May not be ancient yet but definitely old palace, Istana Bandar.

                                                 Something really worth preserving.
                                                                 In the courtyard.

                                                                   Love this corner.

                                                                    A lot of picture perfect corner.
                                                     wish we had more time but it was time to close.

                                                              Compound within compound.

                                 Wish that the authority do a better job than just keep it empty.

The sun was setting and we have to think of a place for dinner. Then I thought of a place which we had not been to. Upon checking, it is only 20km away.

And there we were...Dong Zeng temple.

                                                        "Looking back is the shore"....haha......

                                                                    Really beautiful orchid here.

                                                                   Well maintained landscape.

          Peace and ....love??

                                                     It is rather small compare to the one in Taiwan.

                                                        Lumbini, Buddha 's birth place in Nepal.

                                                                         Giant lantern at the corner.

                                                            Piggy ride at every place we visited.

The day trip ended with a blessed dinner at a seafood restaurant by the river with beautiful sunset.

                                                                   Seafood dinner by the riverbank.

                                                           Dine with the sunset was really blissful.

                                                 
We had another great day trip with unintentional find in the old royal town of Jugra. The Lighthouse view is really mesmerising and the Royal Mausoleum plus the Istana making the place worth a visit.

And on the way back, already we were talking about the next trip....
