Huge temple on a hill. There are 2 temples within the ground. Big Buddha statues lined the driveway to the entrance. The temple overlooks the sea. Cool and breezy.

The day we visited the ladies were singing, beautiful to look at. You are only there really for 10mins unless you go to pray. Pretty to see, can taxi there from town centre.

Just 5km from the CBD is this amazing Temple. Words can’t do justice to how wonderful the overall experience is. The intricate work to create this temple must be seen to be believed. Thoroughly recommended a visit here.

Beautiful temple with magnificent sea views. Very grand temple. Great for a short visit if you have a driver otherwise a bit out of the way.

This majestic temple built in 1987 stands on a hilltop overlooking the sea. The entrance is being greeted with Lord Buddha statues and each one is tilted as the road is uphill. A must see place. Decorations are on the way for Chinese New Year.
