There are statues of Buddha, bodhisattva and deity. To enter the main building, you need to take off your shoes. You can light a... More

There were prayers on when I visited so I only went round the edges. You can take stairs up to the level above the temple but it's just a view of all the residential areas. The main problem with this temple is you can never get a good photo of the front because of its position. If it wasn't in... More

If you would like to have a quiet and peaceful place to linger around, this very traditional and buddist temple is a good choice. Located on a hill, it also offers a nice view of the local residential village. The temple is very well maintained and clean. Pay respect to the skillfully crafted and painted statues.

It took us about 15 minute to walk from Brinchang town center to find this beautiful Buddhist Temple, on a spot overlooking... More

My husband and I walked here from our hotel- about 8 k. It was a nice walk and we enjoyed the temple. The monks were chanting while we were visiting and I was welcomed in to listen. They were very nice and made sure I felt welcome. The temple is small but beautiful.

Situated among the lush greenery, this temple was really quiet and serene. It is small but interesting, and makes a nice walk from the town of Brinchang up to the temple for a visit.

Is a Buddhist temple.inside is clean and quiet. Since I'm a Buddha,I just pray and donate some $ before going out. I didn't intend to visit it but is included in the tour package.
