Sitiawan is small town so there are not much attractions. However we tried this temple. The temple itself good enough and beautiful but it's not worth a drive. We thought view of ocean might be something to see but the banks were muddy and so dirty you wanted to look away.

We visited this temple on Sept 2016 during school holiday. When we stayed at Ipoh,some local recommend this attraction to us. It is a big temple.To me it is more likely a Chinese style villa. We spend 30 min to look around.Beside this temple there is a tiny hawker centers that serve Sitiawan local dishes.

Gotta visit the place twice. The statues will have different during day time and again at night! There's a lively local sundry goods market. Good place to pick up local favorites like Dried Foochow noodles, Dried seafood.

Quite a distance from town but can easily lactate with the help from waze. The temple is currently under some renovation. The sculptures are big and beautifully done. Quite well organised as managed through donation and contributions. No entrance fee. Abundant parking. Food and drink not a problem. Quite a number of food and drink stalls.

Your jaw will probably drop when you see this as this is probably one of the three biggest Chinese temples in Malaysia. It's a work in progress through and will be even more impressive in a few years. We saw many non - Chinese visiting this place. I have to warn that if you are expecting a subtle quiet place... More

This is a relatively new temple with a view on the Straits of Malacca. There are plenty of statues and shops around so you won't be bored. There's also a small entry into the mangrove swamps which borders the complex. I think it's a pleasant stroll around but is it an essential visit? I don't think so plus, you need... More

Situated overlooking the Straits of Melaka, making it very breezy. Really a huge temple to spend around 3 hours. Have multiple F&B shops, including a food court selling local delicacies as well as tourism merchandises. Many beautiful statues to admire, as well as landscapes. Also found is a long walking tunnel that shows different Buddhist teachings.

Thank damianteh
