A lot of figure's & craftsmanship to look at. There is a small museum downstairs with the history of the temple of Chinese origin's. Worth a look & you can take photo's as well.

Amazed at the architecture. The sculptures, paintings. Be noted that there is only one main temple and a couple of small side temples. Plenty to see if you pay attention to details.
