  • This is a free stop on the Awana Skyway. It is worth visiting as it is a beautiful temple. There are also great views.

  • It was really fantastic place to visit and enjoy. This is a one of Chinese temple. This place defines that after death what you will get and it depend on your Sins and virtuous deeds. This temple define it by making statues. Telling about hell and heaven. Who'll get heaven and who'll get hell this depend on our nature and good or bad work. I recommend who ever come to Malaysia must go this temple. Really that person will enjoy here.
  • Good place to walk and take in the scenery. There are also food and drinks to be sold at this location. Go on weekdays to get better pics with no one in the background. One issue is that I don't see any designated area for smoking so the smoke can and will travel to where you eat and there is no enforcement on the smoking ban at eateries which puts me off.
