A bit of a gimmick
What we say:
This temple seems like a bit of a gimmick. The snakes are most likely doped and not lulled by the incense as the story goes, yet they do adorn the temple like plastic replicas from a Christmas cracker. The main business revolves around getting your photograph taken with a large python or paying to see the snake exhibition. It seems to be a favourite stop on organised tours. There are certainly better temples in the city itself, though perhaps a worthwhile diversion for those travelling with kids (to entertain the kids, not to feed them to pythons).
