Recommend to visit as the temple is stunning considering how old it has been there. Also, architecture is nice - bringing your feeling back to old days. Anyhow, nothing much to see - only need 10 mins here.

This is a must visit temple. Not only Buddhist visit this temple but there are lots of tourist visiting. The architecture of the old building is beautiful and it is still well maintained! I understand from the local that this is one of the oldest temple in Malaysia!

This is worth taking the time to visit. It is a quiet haven amid the hustle of Jonkers. There is no admission charge.

One of the oldest temple in Malacca city, this temple holds carvings and paintings of deities and celestial beasts of ancient Chinese culture. It is a great place to learn some of Malacca's history and Chinese culture here. Being in the temple makes you feel like you are lost in time with those paintings. Wander around, talk with the people.... More

It is free entry and takes about 10 mins to finish the visit. It seemed like a good choice that I made, since I was in Malacca for only a day. Though it is a place for quick visit, was nonetheless interesting!

If you're in Malacca most likely it's because you're into art, history and culture. A visit to the oldest Chinese temple in Malaysia cannot be missed. The architecture is lovely, check the details of the roof decorations.
