    Magnificent Service

    2019-10

    We were talking to a young woman on the street who led us into this magnificent Confucianism Temple where we saw a beautiful service. It is one of the most visited temples seeing over 10,000 people daily. It was built in 1967 to the god of businessmen. Master Hsuan Kung is the founder believing in the 5 Relationships love between father & son, ruler & subjects, husband & wife, elders & youngsters, and trust between friends.

    Splendid temple

    2019-08

    This is a very busy and very functional temple. The smell of incentese hangs heavily in the air. Lots of people actively praying and many people reading relious texts. A fascinatint place, well worth a visit. Don't get in the way of the devoutees!

    Surprised discovery

    2019-08

    We tried to go to fish market. But with jetlag, my friend definitely lost direction sense. But this led us to tour the wonderful streets and discovers this amazing temple. It full of harmony and peace with many people quietly sitting, strolling, listening or praying.

    Fascinating

    2019-08

    Lots of hustle and bustle, with people queued up to receive blessings or pray. Not much signage in English to explain what is happening but fascinating to watch others exercising the rituals of their faith. Nice small carp pond to the audience right of the main altar. And check out the street of fortune teller in the adjacent underpass.

    Educational -- and different

    2019-07

    The explanation of many of the rituals made our visit worthwhile, such as interpretation of the "definition blocks," so be sure to allow a bit of extra temple-time when visiting.
