What people are saying:

This is one of my favorite places to relax! There are 4 floors to explore, so don't walk into the ground floor, look at the temple, and walk away. The elevator or stairwell is to the right of the temple, and every floor is a must. This temple spent 75 million on a refurbish. It has a stupa in solid gold weighing 350kgs, and the largest prayer wheel in the world on the rooftop.

    A must visit

    You really cannot come to China town without coming her. I bring all my friends from overseas here and they love it. You don’t need to be religious. Just be respectful.
