My wife and I got married here in this temple. You will encounter a lot of couples getting married especially during weekends (Saturday and Sunday). A short 1-2 hours in this temple is enough to enjoy the architecture and culture of the Chinese.

Yes it is free, but take some change to offer a donation for prayer. There aren't clothing restrictions as per say, but it is considerate to not wear "short shorts" or singlets. Hope you have a wonderful time visiting.
Hi! Can anyone advise on opening hours Different websites suggest it closes at 6pm or 10pm Thanks
