Lonely Planet review for Taoist Temple
Founded in 1889, the Lum Sai Ho Tong Society was one of more than 100 societies started by Chinese immigrants in Hawaii to help preserve their cultural identity. This one was for the Lum clan, which hails from west of the Yellow River. The society's Taoist temple honors the goddess Tin Hau, a Lum child who rescued her father from drowning and was later deified. Some claim to see her apparition when they travel by boat. The temple is not open to the general public, but you can still admire the colorful exterior.
