Lonely Planet review

Similar in atmosphere to the Sze Ya Temple is the 1886 Guandi Temple. The main hall is hung with fragrant coils of spiral incense, paper clothes and money that are burned to bring good fortune to the ancestors. The temple is dedicated to Kwan Ti, a historical Chinese general revered by Taoists as the god of war. It is also known as Kwong Siew Free School after the clan association who originally built it.
