This is a very nice temple. Small but nice, everywhere you look you see the charcoils and smell them. Visit this and also have a look at the small streets around the temple.

This temple is worth an effort to go visit: just steps away from Central's business district, you can step back in time and experience traditional values and practices. The temple consists of 2 halls, one of which holds large concentric incense coils. This temple is...More

OK first you have to understand this is not a museum. It is a place of worship and you will see many people worshiping here. So be very respectful. The burning of incense and leaving flowers as they worship is interesting to watch. Be sure...More
