  • It’s nice location for sight seeing and photography. However it’s advisable to dress appropriately (less revealing) as it’s a religious place for Taoists worshipping.
  • Place for marriage registration, temple for praying. Events will be held during chinese new year. Strong culture heritage. Nice place to for family and tourist to visit.
