  • It is one of the biggest Chinesse Budhist temple here. Come and enjoy architecture, color, statue and history of this place. Don't forget to take some selfie and pretend you were in Beijing or Hong Kong. There's costume rental to make it even more believable. The best spots are the main building, the giant gate and the giant statue of Cheng Ho. If you don't enjoy selfie, you can admire the grandness of this place while sitting in the chair under big trees nearby. While the gentle breeze take your sleepy eyes, you can wonder how a Chinesse eunuch, mariner, explorer, diplomat, and fleet admiral who was a moslem is praised as a god by some. History is an attraction if you are into it, and this place is a perfect place to enjoy it.
  • bagus buat foto
  • This place is good to take some photo and otherwise you can see some people pray in this site, this location is near from simpang lima field. Enjoy and Visit semarang 2016
  • I have to give 3 stars. Not because of the temple is bad, but because there were lots of garbage everywhere. It was either because of irresponsible visitors or the temple's janitors. And for the temple itself, I just love it.
  • Tempatnya bagus
