I visited many temples, this one is OK but nothing extraordinary. Good to see if taking hiking trail 2 or if visiting Brinchang for other reasons.

It is a quiet and peaceful place to visit. There are several Buddha statues in the main hall as well as adjacent rooms. As the temple is located on a hilltop, it has a nice view of the surrounding areas.

The temple is very peaceful and the opportunity to take a panoramic view of Brinchang town makes my trip even worth it. Please remember to take off your shoes when you visit there. Be sure to check out the koi... More

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
