  • A small temple to visit my Buddhas. Close to my apartment, great location. Can always find some awesome antiques nearby.
  • Recomended for visit if you are interested to see real religious life. I visited it in January just before the Chinese new year celebration - it was crowdy and busy, but it really worth seeing how emotional and passionate people perform the rituals.
  • Beautiful temple tucked away in Hollywood road. A fascinating insight in to the spiritual life of this commercial megacity.
  • This place is interested by many tourists and many local people, especially children and teenagers. The reason is, inside the temple has a pencil, when they touch that pencil they will good at studying.
  • Under construction!. Looks like they are making repairs to the roof so there is scaffolding everywhere. I've been several times and in past years and loved it vowing to come back to take pictures with my good camera of the wonderful red lanterns and coiled incense that crowds the ceiling of this picturesque little temple but when I visited yesterday it was covered with so much scaffolding and boards it was almost impossible to get a picture. If you are in the area you can check it out but not worth the trip until the construction is done.
