“Visit if this is your 1st time!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

A traditional small temple with two "well" (one inside the temple - the original "Cheng Ho Well" and the other one is located outside of the temple). Great architecture especially the main entrance area, unfortunately a bit run down in general. Suggest to go if this is the first trip to Melaka, but not worth to visit if you there for the second round. Spend around 15 min to understand the history of the temple.

“great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

The temple is not overrun by lots of tourist and thus you can have a quiet walk around to take it all in. the temple also has some great photo opportunities. loved being there.

“Very well preserved part of history and culture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

A very ornate temple, open and inviting. Its not very big but you can spend a little bit of time to appreciate the carvings, architecture, and effort to preserve a part of history and culture.

“On the tourist trail, so have a quick look”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Went here not knowing much about Chinese temples, came out not knowing anything more, however still glad we went, as it was interesting all the same. We did not spend more than 15mins, but the temple was pleasant, and theres some good photo opportunities.

“History from a period in which many faiths accepted each other”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Many Chinese come to Malaysia and see what was destroyed in their fatherland. Spend less time on trinket selling shops in Jonkers street and look at the building which is a living temple
