Worth a walk through and take a few photos. Very friendly people inside. It mixes several of the fair together to cover all the breaches of Chinese religion.

No instruction given by travelers, car park was a challenge as the temple was surrounded by offices towers, most car park space was full. As a tourist attraction the temple should provide more information about the temple
