  • This place is actually super cool, and sits on a very large area. For being inside the city it's pretty impressive. The subway actually stops right in front of the temple which is very convenient. The entrance is free, although donation is highly recommended. Temple is huge, and there's a huge garden that is still being built behind the temple where it's quiet pretty and a nice place to meditate. There's multiple areas the house different statues of God's etc. I was especially impressed with the 12 zodiac signs bronze statue in the front courtyard.
  • This temple is absolutely beautiful! Very calm and tranquil during my visit; a contrast from the very busy middle of the city location. The temple, as well as the fish and turtle pond, is very photogenic. It’s easy to see how much effort the staff puts into making and keeping this place looking fabulous. Highly recommend stopping by this temple. We spent about 20 minutes walking throughout. Entrance is free. Public transportation is nearby.
