    Initially a wooden floating Chinese temple dedicated to God of Mercy in year 1972, the temple was completely rebuilt with concrete structure in November 2012. Peaceful and scenic. It is also a photography spot easily be missed due to inaccessibility by motor vehicles. One needs to walk through old residential area at Weld Quay in order to access it. If you are lost, locals are friendly enough to show you the way. The lighting in the evening is astonishing.

    Nice view from the temple, although mercilessly hot in the afternoon. Very friendly and helpful staff

    Beautiful temple, place of worship located at Weld Quay. Suggest to visit the temple during evening to enjoy its lighting as well.

    A beautiful temple set at the very end of one of the clan jetties. It's tricky to find but keep looking because it's worth it. There's a great view and a sea breeze at this lovely temple. Make sure you go upstairs for an even better view.
