An authentic and old Chinese temple built within a cave, with a beautiful garden and a large pond. Suitable for family. If you like Buddhist culture, this is the place you should visit. There is a vegetarian restaurant in the temple too.

A typical Chinese temple built under a hill. Definitely worth to see & gives you some taste of Chinese culture. No entrance fee... & Turtle pond will gives you the reason for visiting again. Nice place... Don't miss!!!

For me personally, this was an enjoyable visit. For certain parts of the visit to this cave, one can feel like Indiana Jones! Okay, the locals may be jaded by this place but I was impressed nonetheless. As you approach the main entrance, this place...More
