  • This place is actually super cool, and sits on a very large area. For being inside the city it's pretty impressive. The subway actually stops right in front of the temple which is very convenient. The entrance is free, although donation is highly recommended. Temple is huge, and there's a huge garden that is still being built behind the temple where it's quiet pretty and a nice place to meditate. There's multiple areas the house different statues of God's etc. I was especially impressed with the 12 zodiac signs bronze statue in the front courtyard.
  • This temple is absolutely beautiful! Very calm and tranquil during my visit; a contrast from the very busy middle of the city location. The temple, as well as the fish and turtle pond, is very photogenic. It’s easy to see how much effort the staff puts into making and keeping this place looking fabulous. Highly recommend stopping by this temple. We spent about 20 minutes walking throughout. Entrance is free. Public transportation is nearby.
  • If you’ve ever felt afraid of losing a man’s love – or even changed yourself in order to “earn” or keep his love – you may be chasing love or seeking security outside of yourself. Deep down you may be thinking, “If I can win (or keep) this man’s love, I’ll finally feel lovable and secure, and everything in my life will be complete.” When you put the key to your happiness or sense of security in someone else’s hands – if they don’t do what you want, you can take that to mean that you’re not worthwhile or lovable! Instead, if you want to feel confident and secure around a man so that he feels like he naturally just wants to be closer to you, here’s what you should do instead… Click here to read the rest Talk soon, Matthew Coast P.

  • Beautiful temple. Excellent for photos. I wish I had more time to explore this place. Although, this temple was also closed in multiple areas for either cleaning or renovation, which was upsetting for me as my trip was not very long. But I did enjoy the areas I did get to see. Very serene area, with turtles and fish.
  • A lovely place for a cultural visit​ and ​the temple​'​s architecture​ and tradition​ is well​ maintained. Although its a very busy place, I felt relaxed here.​ This temple is a home to three religions (Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism)​​. It has a beautiful garden and a carp pond to spend some time there.​ Renovation is under process so many parts of it are closed off to the public​.
