    A busy and centrally located temple just next to the St George's Church. Incense burning outside almost all day long. Quite busy. On the temple square at the entrance, plenty of pigeons around on the ground. Quite a pleasant experience. Jos stick incense not allowed in the temple.

    This is a very busy urban temple that worshipers attend throughout the day. It is a practical temple where needs are met in a down to earth manner. When I visited the temple, it was filled with worshipers and a couple who had brought their baby to be blessed. The monk walked to the front alter and conducted their ceremony; while in the rear room, the other worshipers made offerings of oil and lit incense.

    In the middle of the city, the temple is very beautiful and there is a very cute garden on the back
