We saw this temple on the map and were walking along Queen's Road East and came across this lovely little temple and were surprised by the smallness of the temple. It was well kept and you could just go in and look around. I didn't go up stairs unfortunately. Maybe next time

Nice temple tucked in a busy street. Do get inside. Huge tree at the back of the temple. Go upstairs for more rooms including the very nice office for the person in charge.
