Historic building, and one of the few to survive Kuching's big fire in the 1880s. The temple is open-air at the top and has a nice view of the river.

This strategically located temple in the middle of city centre is a common sight in Kuching. You will pass by this temple every time you ply through the Waterfront. Long established temple, a historic monument of Kuching.

Just pass by but did not go inside as cannot find parking space. Overlooking the Sarawak River and looks big. Very old temple as it is the earliest when the Chinese first settled in Kuching.
