Legend says this temple was discovered by a Chinese Taoist priest named Kuong San Teik in 1867. Nam Thin Tong Temple literally translated means Cave of the Southern Sky. It is located between the cave of Sam Poh Tong and Cave of Ling Sen Tong. Nan Tian Dong Taoist Cave Temple is right between Ling Xian Yan and further inward, Sam Poh Tong Buddhist Cave Temple. It used to be ranked at par with the Sam Poh Tong and whenever you mentioned Sam Poh Tong, it was automatically associated with the name of Nam Tian Tong. "Tong" is referred as "cave" while "Nan" is the South and the word "Tian" is the sky; so if you translate that further, the Cave host the various Buddhist figures from the Southern Sky (heaven). There are illustrations of various colorful personalities and characters at the lower portion of the temple’s entry section. This is a Taoist Temple in nature. Its alternative name is Nan Dao Yuan ("Nam Tou Yun" in Cantonese) which basically means College of Southern Religious Principles.
