An interesting, somewhat sprawling complex, but without commentary its hard to know what its all about. Be respectful if you go and take your shoes of well outside of the front door.

The hotel was very close so it was our last spot to visit before we left to the airport. Take your time, there are so many beautiful rooms to look at.

Only visited the first floor, so perhaps I missed where the relic is on the 4th floor? It was super busy because of the Chinese New Year and I had gone to the one in Sri Lanka a few weeks before, so I wasn't motivated...More

It was beautiful to be there during the public holiday: the atmosphere and the mysticism of the place are tangible. All the areas of the temple are beautiful and rich in details. You MUST visit this temple.

Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its

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.

Not that I'm aware of. This temple is more of a museum & place of worship.
