This temple is old but has beautiful architecture. Worth a visit if you are in Changhua. The ceiling of the entrance area is particularly fascinating. There are numerous seafood restaurants and cake shops in the nearby streets.

We visited the temple in the evening along with our business associates. It was something like visiting a Indian temple. To every god / goddess incense sticks were offered. and prayer done.

Not very big, but the design and carvings are so beautiful. Particularly good advice given by our taxi driver, even though you are of different faith, just admire and appreciate the beauty and architecture of the building. Plenty of food outside the temple.
