Cheng Hoon Teng Temple

The materials used to build it were imported from China, and its lacquer work and carvings of mythological creatures make it one of Chinatown's most impressive buildings.

The impeccable restoration work even earned it a UNESCO award.

The main prayer hall is dedicated to Guanyin, the Chinese Buddhist goddess of mercy, but elements of Taoism and Confucianism are also incorporated in the architecture and the religious rites performed here.

Free admission.
