The atmosphere inside was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced, and the scale and composition of the space is overwhelming. Once inside I didn’t want to leave. Garan was practically deserted and for some time I was the only person inside the pagoda, there was no one even collecting the entrance donations. It was so silent. Incense. 

At some point a couple entered and the lady sat down on the bench next to me. They left after 5-10 minutes. I spent well over 30 minutes inside.
