  • Nice and clean temple available in Pangkor, hidden inside within a Chinese community area, renovated with bright colour  more »
  • A beautiful temple with good scenery to visit in Pulau Pangkor. Excellent scenery to take photo with green and beautiful forest scenery.  more »
  • The uniqueness of the Chinese communities when beliefs are concerned boils down to perfecting the roots to the origin of the local community. Here lies a blend of cultural transition between Taoism and Buddhism. The temple built in modern times crafted beautifully with decoration of dragons and various forms of deities are intriguing and provocative to draw a thought-impression to stimulate the fine arts of Chinese heritage. The main temple hall housed a famous Chinese philosopher in ancient China known as Lao Tze built next to the Pangkor hill slope located at Sungei Pinang Besar. Plenty of highly enchanting photography spots to add to your collection. There's a mini Great wall look alike built at the back of the main shrine with other scenic attractions; that of a huge rock carved with the chinese character 'carry'. The latest attractions apart from the famous pig skin drum that continues to grows hair, is a Buddha statute surrounded by the famous legendary Shaolin temple 18 immortal monks. The adorning arch gate in front of the temple is a piece of colourful and captivating sight. Overall this highly colourful and decorative temple is a must see attractions. The temple is open to public of all races, if you are interested to learn about other religious beliefs here should be an interesting hangout. My first ever visit to this temple ends with full of satisfaction, hope there will be another available options to come here again. I gives a thumb up 👍.
  • A well proper maintained temple overlooking east to the mainland. Free admissions. Helpful and approachable temple caretakers. Do consider to offer some donation during yr visitation.
