“Chinese Temple-Tua Pek Kong”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

If you are a Buddist/Toaist, this is the place to pray & meditate (Back portion). You can burn insence/joss-sticks & pray for blessing/protection....etc
For non Buddist/Toaist, one can simply enter for a visit (free of charge) & observe this unique cultural practice/inheritance. The place is clean & the building is well kept.(It is located very near to Hilton Hotel, overlooking the busy traffic road facing the Kuching River-Waterfront)
