Historic building, and one of the few to survive Kuching's big fire in the 1880s. The temple is open-air at the top and has a nice view of the river. The sculptures and other artwork is nice but not exceptional relative to other Malaysian temples....More

This strategically located temple in the middle of city centre is a common sight in Kuching. You will pass by this temple every time you ply through the Waterfront. Long established temple, a historic monument of Kuching.
