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

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.

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.

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!!
