  • Excellent to visit especially during Chinese Lunar month of 9 for celebration of 9 Emperor Festival. Whole stretch of street is filled with vegetarian food vendors. Go there during evening time between 6pm to 7pm to get the magical twilight hour photo. Many levels to visit and photograph. This temple is established since 1970 and ranked among the most beautiful temple dedicated to the 9 Emperor Gods. Verdict - worth to detour.
  • Temple night view is nice and night market available 2 months before CNY
  • Nice looking Chinese temple, great ornamentation
  • The landmark touristic spot in mainland Butterworth. Tips: there's a CNY night market every night between End Nov-end Jan
  • The architecture is amazing
