Would love to come another time, maybe during the school classes to really appreciate this place. As the area is very crowded. It also look like it's not open .

I was surprised by the openness of the temple and the strong smell of incense. Tourists are able to light prayers requests for a small fee. I think a guide or really detailed guide book is necessary to appreciate this attraction.

Recommend going with a guide as you can learn a fair bit about why the temple is set out the way it is. Will say it is like most other temples that are around however this one is a Taoist temple not Buddhist
