Relaxing and peaceful. This is quite a small temple in terms of land but really beautiful. There's also a good bar slightly further on down the road that sells Tiger beer on draft ;)

A beautiful Chinese temple. Words cannot describe the fabulous aromas from the incense as you ascend the steps. A living, breathing and very real place for the +800,000 Chinese population of Kuching.

Been there too many time in our own transport. Not too sure about a bus going there. I guess you could hop on a van sapu for a price they charge which is quite reasonable which you could from the city centre.
