The 11th-century Zǔmiào temple is believed to be the site where Cantonese opera flourished. The art is still performed today during festivals to entertain the gods, and the tourists. Sharing the complex are a Confucius temple (c1911) and memorial halls dedicated to two martial artists born in Fóshān – Wong Fei Hung (aka Huang Fei Hong) and Ip Man.

There are daily performances of kung fu (10am, 2pm and 3pm) and lion dance (10.30am, 2.30pm and 3.30pm). The temple runs martial arts classes for children every summer. Call 8222 1680 for details.
