We saw this beautiful temple from the street and decided to visit and took some photos. Too bad it was closed, so we can only took photos from outside the fence. Couldn't see the beautiful statue of Kuanyin from where we parked.

I only passed by, looking over the fence, but it looks very impressive. There were workers at their job, so I did not want to intrude. The designs are very colourful and intricate. The scale of the buildings impressive, too.

Once you get past the dodgy Looking road which had us saying 'where is this taking us!' The temple and heavenly queen are both a beautiful site! It is in a great spot by the water, very pretty.
