Within air conditioner, this place is clam and cosy. You can find beauty beyond these sacred details inside. I just went there on the half-moon day and found myself in the chanting. Good for me. Last but not least, free Wi-Fi is also available.

This temple is known as Buddhist temple. Although it's a Buddhist temple, everyone could visit this temple. Some of the visitors is praying and some of the visitors is just sightseeing. If you are visiting Chinatown, we suggest you to visit this temple.

Next to Chinatown, went in accidentaly and was surprised at the Temple. Well decorated and there was a ceremony going on. Did not go to other levels but the main level is worth a visit if in the Chinatown vicinity.

Temple very friendly to tourists. At the same time there is the atmosphere of the Buddhist temple. Worth seeing. You have to go to the temple, the shoes stay on the street.

A real gem where the locals come to pay their respects and you can see the monks at prayer. Very well kept. It is free to enter but you will have to borrow a wrap for bare legs and arms.

Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
