  • A place filled with rich history. Recommend to attend the performance to see the whole history of the temple being performed right infront of your own eyes, however, it's only in Chinese.
  • I rated this temple a five because of the sheer size. It is pretty new and it is built to attract visitors. The site is huge and you should get the ticket with the tram ride to save some walking and get away from the sun. There are several buildings to visit and a museum where the relic is kept. This place is a must if you are a staunch Buddhist.
