We visited while they were doing spiritual readings and monks rythmicly reading. Lots of beautiful Buddha's and offerings to each. Incense in the air adds to the experience.

It is a beautiful temple in the heart of Chinatown. Worth seeing. As for cultural value, I found it too crowded at midday so it took away the serenity. There are more peaceful temples but nothing on this scale.

The temple is open to the public FOC. It’s quite a tranquil place amidst the bussle of Chinatown. There is not a great deal to see but, if you are a Buddhist, it will be on interest.

Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
