  • This temple carries at least 100 years of history for the local Chinese to pray everyday and packed especially during public holidays. This is where you look out for the culture and custom of Chinese migrants. Definitely worth the visit.
  • As one of the oldest Buddhist temple in M'cca. it was given a facelift for the past years. A street within 200 meters in a same row house a Mosque, Hindi temple & Buddhist temple, harmony was practise century ago.
