Well, its a temple. Not too large and a good place to stop for 20 minutes or so and poke around. Some interesting alcoves and qutie a variety of incense burning throughout.

It is worth a visit to observe and use all your senses to appreciate the cultural significance of the building itself and just as imortantly the believers actions in creating thev awe and mystery using copious amounts of incense.

Its an old temple. But isn't particularly pretty or interesting. There is a constant stream of tourist going in and out, so the temple can get pretty crowded.

We spent about an hour at this place. Atmosphere is pleasant. Incense sticks lighted everywhere giving a lot of fragnance to the environment. Free clean toilets available. Small uphill walk to the temple not tiring.

Haven’t been here for some time. There’re many groups of Chinese visitors. There’re much more buildings nearby so that I couldn’t look far away even after I climbed the hill at the back of the temple.

A temple well observed by the believers because it is crowd with the incense sticks and offerings. Many people come and go.

I spent about 30 minutes wondering up and around the temple site, but without any info signs or guides, it wasn't an experience I'd write home to mum about.
