It's a local Chinese-style temple!
Putuo Temple is in the suburbs and was donated by the Chinese in Sabah. Tourists can visit it for free. Kota Kinabalu is not very big, so it is only ten minutes' drive from the city, and it is about 10 ringgits by taxi with GRAB. The temple area is quite large. There are gates, parking lot, front hall, nave, apse, side hall, restaurant, dormitory building, small garden, kindergarten (yes, the kindergarten is fine, the Chinese kindergarten attached to the temple), Guanyin statue and other buildings, visit time About 2H. It is similar to domestic temples. What is more distinctive is that the temple has many murals. Basically, the outer walls are painted with large murals, which are very beautiful. If you are not in a hurry, it is very pleasant to have a fast meal in the temple, read Buddhist books and drink tea in the pavilion in the afternoon. The temple has free Buddhist books, newspapers and periodicals for free borrowing, and there is a self-service coin vending machine. The toilet is on the right side of the stairs on the right side of the apse (next to the kindergarten).
Then I went to a Buddhist temple here, Putuo Temple. The Guanyin Niangniang here is different from the other places. The Guanyin Niangniang in other places is normally placed, and the bottle here is downward. , The opposite position is a cemetery, which means that all sentient beings are Purdue.
A Guanyin at the entrance of Putuo Temple is very conspicuous. There are few people inside. Only a few Chinese are cleaning. After visiting this temple with a pious heart, I feel very quiet. You need slippers when you enter the room, pay attention to the kneeling mat.
Built by the local Chinese, it enshrines Guanyin Bodhisattva. The Chinese accounted for 23[%] in East Malaysia, and they were all living across the oceans to Southeast Asia for nearly a hundred years. Putuo Temple is the spiritual home of the Chinese in East Malaysia. There is a huge standing statue of Guanyin Bodhisattva at the door.
This is still a good spot to walk around to seek some quiet moments within their compound amidst our busy schedules and to take some snaps for remembrance.
It has a few small shrines within this temple so make sure you check them all out and pray for blessings while visiting all. The main entrance you will see a big tall goddess statue and up the stairs ...
buddhst temple with an outdoor guan xin statue. one of the local tour destination for most chinese tourist. normally not crowded on weekdays
Located in city of Kota Kinabalu a place worth visit. A very big statue at entrance gives a grand look..
There was a service happening when we visited, but we could still access a lot of the garden, smaller temple areas. Very beautiful and we didn't have to pay an entrance fee.
