Additional Information


Putuo Temple was built in 1980 and is located at the end of Tuaran Road in Sabah, Malaysia. The temple inherits the consistent architectural style of Chinese temples. Ten large Buddha statues including Guanyin Bodhisattva stand at the gate in front of the temple. The monastery is open twice a day for Buddhist chanting. This Putuo Temple is the spiritual home of Chinese in East Malaysia. In a foreign country, seeing a Chinese-style temple is really intimacy. After entering, you can see the huge statue of Guanyin Bodhisattva. In front of the mountain gate of the temple, there is a fairy sculpture of white jade. The sculpture is very artistic, and it is indeed the image of a Chinese lady. The building materials of the temple are all shipped from China, and all the design blueprints are based on traditional Chinese temples. After entering, in front of the Daxiong Hall, there are Pixiu and White Elephant separate mountain gates, as well as "Multi-child Buddha" and "Maitreya Buddha". The three Buddhas are enshrined in the hall, and many good believers offer incense here. There are many boxes for collecting old clothes in the temple, but there are no merit boxes that can be seen everywhere, and there is no place to sell incense, but there is a box for incense in front of each temple, free incense, but for environmental protection, it is recommended that every pilgrim Only one incense stick is lit at a time, and people follow it. Let you experience the holiness, cleanliness, order and indifference that the temple should be, completely unaffected by the world.
