  • The Shrine is an incredibly moving experience. Glad we did the tour as it went into more detail and explanation than would have been possible in our own. I liked how the guide politely moved non-payers away from our group. Thanks for respecting those of us who have paid. We will be back.
  • Lots of great history assembled into modern interesting displays. Worth a visit. Views of the city are breath taking. If you do nothing else besides climb to the top and take some photos is still worth the trip
