This temple, also known as the 'Kuan Yin Teng' (in Hokkien dialect), was built in the 1800's to honour the goddess Kuan Yin. It features a sweeping roof with ornately decorated copings and ridges. Young and old devotees converge here especially on special days like the first and fifteenth day of the lunar calendar months to offer joss sticks, flowers, burn sandalwood incense as they pray for health, wealth, fertility and longevity.
