Guanyin Temple - Review

The temple was built in 1880, dedicated to the Goddess of Mercy, Kuan Yin. It’s architecture is unusual for the city – a mix of European and Chinese baroque. It’s quite a colourful building, but tourists usually just vsit to see the three golden statues inside. The Shakaymuni (the Buddha) statue is the main one. The South Sea Guan Yin Statue is to its right. The goddess statue is to the left. Try and visit during times of chanting; it’s a wonderfully meditative experience.
