We then rode to a waterfall nearby, which required a leisurely but beautiful 45-minute hike through some bamboo forest. Again, the air was cool, and everything around there was still quite green, unlike the drained rice paddies in the low lying areas. The waterfall itself wasn't life changing (it's no Ti Lor Su), but it was still impressive
Interesting note about the White Temple: the artist who created it has painted modern scenes and icons inside. There is a painting of the planes crashing into the Twin Towers, as well as depictions of Superman, Neo from the Matrix, and I think some Transformers. The intention is to embrace modern culture and moments instead of the traditional historical images of the Ramayana or things of that nature. Like I said, it's an interesting temple complex.
