“Did You Hit The Turtle?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

It's an old Chinese Temple with many statues. Also, there's an area to drop coins onto the heads of turtles. Locals believe it brings them luck if they do. As a result, there are massive turtles there.

All in all, neat to see, but not much to do but take pictures - unless you're Buddhist and want to Pray.
