Very small temple
Sep 2018 • Friends
Quite disappointed by the size of the temple. The entrance does look grand and the place houses just a small shrine for worship

Unique specific sacred city pillar
Sep 2017 • Solo
the historical ancient sacred place of Songkhla town,

this city Pillar has some specific characteristic that might be different from the other city in Thailand (usually, the city pillar will be implement individually in each province).

why?
refer to this specific Songkhla city pillar had been implemented exactly within the old ancient Chinese shine since the previous day.

hence, this city pillar implementation concept quite different compare with the other province. (it should be consider as Thailand Amazing place).

within the same vicinity, there is the old local small size school which has provided Chinese language lesson (probably the prototype of bilingual education system) for the Chinese families children for long time and still operate until today.

it would be great to visit this place during there has annual festival, enjoy Chinese opera shows during the night time, that is so impressive experience.

Small Chinese temple in the Old Town district
Feb 2018 • Solo
This is a small Chinese temple located in the centre of the Old Town district. There's not really that much to make it memorable or remarkable and if you've seen Chinese temples in other cities around the world you're unlikely to find this one that impressive. A quick visit is sufficient.

A "Buddhist" Shrine to "Old Chinatown"!!
Oct 2017 • Couples
For a "taste of LOCAL CULTURE" this shrine recognises the original Chinese migrant population!! It is in the "Historic District"-- which is an interesting place as well! This is yet another example of Thailand's historical "welcoming spirit" towards immigrants!!

Bright and red temple
May 2017 • Friends
Located at a very narrow street filled with eateries, shops and other temples. Bright and colourful entrance. Temple is clean and well kept. There is a short history write up and pictures of the temple once you walk and a stage for events and performances. Across the stage is the actual main hall where all deities are. Coming from an Asian country, I have been to many similar Temples for a visit thus it was not must go for me but made a visit since we were in the area. It would be nice for tourist who have not been to an actual Chinese temple to have a feel of the actual atmosphere of a temple. The most interesting part of this temple trip was the little noodle stall which was beneath the stage. Did not try the noodles but it was captivating to see people eating beneath the stage in little benches. You definitely have to be able to bend low enough or duck walk to get beneath the stage and not forget at any point in time that you are below a stage (especially after a meal when you would automatically stand up after a meal to leave)

Pillar is a confusing word
Dec 2016 • Family
It's located in the heart of the old town. It's in fact a Chinese temple and a very nice one. Opposite of the temple square there's some old photos giving you a glimpse of the past. No visit to Songkhla can go without a visit to this temple.

Lovely Temple
Nov 2016 • Friends
This shrine is still in the process of being beautifully refurbished.
Located in Songkhla's Chinatown it is of course, a Chinese Temple, filled with beauty and colour.
Entry is free and it is well worth a visit

Delightful Shrine In the old district
Oct 2016
Located in the old Thai Chinese historic district of Songkhla the Pillar Shrine is a nice attraction and a great starting point for your visit to the old district. Perhaps the best part is it's location because from the Shrine you are within walking distance of all the beautiful murals of Songkhla. Just across the street from where the shrine sight seeing bus stops is a mural of the old Songkhla bicycle shop. Many restaurants are also within walking distance such as the delightful "Secret Garden" and the rooftop "Blue Smile Cafe".
