  • The steps and location seem daunting but the promise of seeing the oldest temple had us headed to the top. Having lived in Asia, we were very conscious of being respectful while there. The actual reli...  more »
  • Not a tourist attraction. Site for personal worship and not well kept at that. Little hole in the wall up four flights of stairs. You walk through hallways of apartment doors and graffitied trash cans...  more »
  • We had a very hard time locating this place. Once there it was on the 3rd floor of the building. Once we got to the 3rd floor it said "No pictures" --ok I get that because it is a place of worship. Ho...  more »

  • A couple of things to keep in mind, if you plan on dropping by as part of your tour of Chinatown. First, it is a functioning, neighborhood, buddhist temple; It is not primarily a tourist attraction. The temple seems to be cool with tourists, but many of the people there are simply local people going about their daily lives. (If you are a christian, imagine going to a church where random people off the street walk in and out of your services to look around at the church and you.) Second, the temple is in the uppermost apartment in a four-story apartment building. You have to walk up four flights of stairs to get there and when you get there, it is tiny, probably smaller than you had expected. But it is beautiful and worth dropping by to see and they will even help you interpret your fortune if they have time.
  • Very nice historic temple
  • Went there as part of Chris's Foodie Adventure food tour of China town. He gave is some history and then the lady inside gave us some more history. I won't spoil it for you. Definitely worth going. Make a small donation and experience how to get your fortune told! Pray if you want.
  • Really not a place to go... you go up 3 floors to see some old stuff in a 10 meters Sq area...
  • This is a historic Chinese temple to the Chinese Sea Goddess.
