Besides being an ancient Chinese Buddhist temple, the place also showcase to visitors the oriental arts during those period. The main attraction should be the statue of Goddess of Mercy with Thousand hands. I learned that it was crafted from a huge piece of gingo tree. Very impressive.. There are lots of shops and food stalls nearby.

This 18th century temple complex houses one of the most impressive gilded statues of Guanyin with a "thousand arms" (more like a few dozen) I've ever seen. It's well-worth the admission fee to walk through the quiet temple grounds and see the Buddhas.
