For the faithfuls this is their ultimate place to visit. There are several chambers of the "different" gods,Here one can offer their prayers and receive blessings from the divine.

It is a quiet temple, constantly under renovations. During holidays it is very busy and packed. It is nice to visit if you understand the history behing General Guan, if not, White Horse temple is more worth your time.

If you like the character General Guan, then this place is worth the visit. Otherwise, you may want to consider giving it a miss. It has rich Chinese history.
