Not much is heard about this temple, posters and advertisements are scarce. Malaysian tourist pamphlet does not include this attraction too (maybe the officers do not know). There are ample parking spaces for buses and cars (easily exceed 1000 parking bays). My assumption this is the largest temple in Peninsular Malaysia, a little bit smaller than the one in Sibu....

I was looking for somewhere to go which was nearby when i stumbled upon the temple. It is situated by the sea and its breezy all day. There were a lot of statues in the temple small and big. A nice place for photographers. A nice place to spend an hour of your time.

In truth, and given the long drive from KL, only went to this temple because it was recommended to my wife and she wanted to visit. However, it significantly exceeded my expectations. Although obviously new, and in some respects still not completely finished, it definitely induced a serious "wow". The temple complex is surprisingly large, on first arrival it actually... More

Sitiawan is small town so there are not much attractions. However we tried this temple. The temple itself good enough and beautiful but it's not worth a drive. We thought view of ocean might be something to see but the banks were muddy and so dirty you wanted to look away.

We visited this temple on Sept 2016 during school holiday. When we stayed at Ipoh,some local recommend this attraction to us. It is a big temple.To me it is more likely a Chinese style villa. We spend 30 min to look around.Beside this temple there is a tiny hawker centers that serve Sitiawan local dishes.

Gotta visit the place twice. The statues will have different during day time and again at night! There's a lively local sundry goods market. Good place to pick up local favorites like Dried Foochow noodles, Dried seafood.
