What we say: 3.5 stars

The pagoda was built in the early 1940s by Cantonese immigrants and is one of the few, if not only, Taoist pagodas in the city. The focal point here is a statue of Laoste, one of the three pure ones in Taoist culture, who has a halo made from florescent lights.

Although not the most historic of temples, the pagoda should be commended for its philanthropic efforts, which include a home for the elderly and a next door clinic, offering herbal medicine and acupuncture treatments free of charge.
