Hong San See Temple information
Lonely Planet review
Perched on a hill, this imposing Chinese temple dates back to 1913. Its sloping tiled roofs and ornamented columns are southern Chinese in style, while the gold-gilded woodcarvings adorning the inner doors are particularly impressive. In the main hall you'll find an altar dedicated to patron deity Guangze Zunwang, and secondary altars to Chenghuang (the City God), Xuantian Shangdi and Guanyin (the Goddess of Mercy). The verses penned on the rear columns are by the late Chinese poet and calligrapher Pan Shou.
