They were measuring land areas, doing profit and loss and return on investment calculations.... More

Very impressive visit to the temple. It was FREE. Walked and looked at all the Interactive displays that had been updated a few years back with lots of computers screens describing all the history, Two(2) 15 mins movies in their theater, and lots of re created art and musical instruments to view

Despite the overflying airplanes on their landing way to the nearby airport this is a quiet and peaceful place to visit. The temple is relatively small and has a beautiful architecture with few ornaments. Very few people when we visited it. Note that It is just opposite the Bao An temple which also deserves a visit. Would recommend combining the... More
