Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

Modeled after a now-demolished castle in Sri Lanka, Loha Prasat, which means "metal-roofted castle”, is the world’s last remaining structure of its kind. The magnificent edifice boasts 37 goldgilded metal spires that symbolize the 37 Buddhist virtues requisite for reaching enlightenment. The central building houses Buddha relics, and has a spiral staircase that goes up to a viewpoint with striking panoramas of the Old Town. The tranquil compound is a popular meditation site among locals.
