This Temple was very serene. The Monks were welcoming and their chanting is wonderful. I recommend a visit.

A quick stop to the temple to learn about its history and the Buddhist belief. The statues on top of the temple are brought from China and are over 100 years old.

I came here as part of a full day tour. It was an interesting wee temple with lots of incense hanging and burning from the celling but if short of time this is not a must do and a wee way out of district one.
