Kuan Yin Temple information
Called simply the 'Buddhist Temple' by most, this attractive classical Chinese complex is an intriguing stop. The highlight is the sumptuous Gracious Hall, complete with deep-red exterior walls and a gently flaring orange porcelain roof. Check out the colorful 100m Buddha mural and the golden, multi-armed Bodhisattva figure here. The surrounding landscaped garden with its sculptures and bonsai trees is another highlight, but allow yourself time to enjoy a lip-smacking veggie lunch in the ground-floor cafeteria. You don't have to be a Buddhist to visit and the monks are highly welcoming if you just want to have a look around.
