Very small temple . Mainly for locals to pray so please be respectful of photos etc if people are praying.. Pretty architecture and is pretty old i’m sure. We did the whole thing in 3mins whole the cab driver drove around the block lol

rather small but has ornate ceramic carvings especially on the roof. A typical Taoist temple and a quick visit will suffice. Easily accessible from waterfront.

It might be small but it’s one of the most worth visit places in Kuching city after you’ve heard about the history of it. Situated in the heart of the city, it’s a well-preserved temple. Believed to be the oldest temple started in the 1800s.

We were there just at the en of the new year celebration. Interesting to watch all the observances including burning "money" in large fireplaces.

Right across the street from my hostel. Interesting, but not a must see. It is very central to the main tourist area.

The temple is very beautiful because the entire red temple symbolizes profits to the Chinese. The temple was built in the 17th century which was in 1770 and was named Siew San Teng Tua kong kong. NOTED: BEFORE YOU BRING YOUR CHILDREN TO KNOW HISTORY...More

It is a nice archticture, but it is small inside. There are some impressive objects inside. On the riverbank there are some three or four taoist temples. They create a nice atmosphere of the Chinatown of Kuching.

It's a truly beautiful Taoist temple that needs about 15-20 min to appreciate. There is a not many better in the Sarawak area from what I have seen.

Impressive Taoist temple located prominently at the waterfront. Ornate and colourful, it is said to have the best 'feng shui' in the city.

It doesn't take long to look round the temple but, if you're passing, it's worth stopping as it is impressive.
