    The oldest wisdom and knowledge are found here. Devotees often found their prayers are answered. I love Sin Sze Si Ya.

    It was a first visit to a Chinese temple. Unlike Hindu temple you are not required to remove shoes here. Some local person showed me all the way arround and handed over me a information booklet. People often come here and make their request writing on the paper which you will find hanging in red colour. Temple is also famous for fortune telling. For reading this out you have to take out a bamboo piece by shaking the whole bunch. Every Peice is having a number on it. This number you will have to refer with the book given by the Temple keeper.
