Beautiful Chinese temple that is surprisingly old with many of the features imported at the time. The roofscape is wonderful. Inside is the usual exuberance and the laquer work is exquisite. A lovely space.

The age of this pagoda is quite old, built since 1645, the unique material used is imported directly from China at the time of its construction. The building is very historic especially the proving of historical facts about the entry of Chinese at that time.
