The moment u enter the temple you will feel the positive vibes, its an old temple, simple architecture with lot of visitors and people having prayer. It was raining and added to the pristine nature of the place. A must visit in Guangzhow.

It is nice, folky looking temple, large but not overly decorated as many other Chinese temple nowadays often do. Good for slow walk. Most of the building is under construction or just finished renovation recently as most temple in china does there days.

Good place to witness sacred rituals and observe worshippers, especially during famous Chinese or Cantonese festivals. But don't be startled if huge crowds of people surrounds you all the time. It's China, it's normal.

I’ve been here before but today during Qing Ming Festival it was covered in blooms and people who had the day off for the occasion. Pretty and larger than the neighbouring temple but doesn’t have a pagoda if that’s what you’re after.
