Chin swee is a very beautiful temple and depicts the buddhist culture. The temple has many floors and the view from the topmost floor is just out of the world.

It's like a temple with a park which exhibit some looks of paradise and how the 18 stages of hell look like for educational purposes to teach us not to involve in crime, cheat and so on besides being filial piety and with good moral values. Murals and statues of Buddha, god and goddess are every where as well as... More

Went here on a day trip and wasn't sure what to expect but wasn't disappointed. Similar to Kok Lok See in Penang, this temple is spread out with lots to see. The views are stunning and it was a pleasant surpirse to feel a little bit cold! The vegetarian restaurant (that serves meat) wasn't appealing so we gave that a... More

Go there before twelve o'clock. So you will find a cool and nice place for photostop. The restroom or toilet is in another building which have pagoda. Try to go up to the pagoda you will find a great view and nice photo spot
