    This taoist temple is dedicated to the Heavenly Mother and is located on Robson Heights, an elevated piece of land where you can get a view of the nearby areas.

    It's a magnet for just-married couple photos & hosts many events during the year, all of which appear to require the hanging of thousands of red lanterns, with spectacular results. Read more

    This has an impressive architecture of modern and traditional design. Must-see: prayer hall with three altars. Also get a blessing of water from the small statue of Guan Yin, the Mercy Goddess.

    This is a nice peaceful temple. Be mindful of the signs. If you take a taxi, have them wait for you (roughly 30 mins) as it can be difficult to get one back down the hill.

    The main hall with 3 altars is soooo much beautiful, mostly in the early morning sun. There is also a small nice garden behind the hall

    Beware of theft. Do not leave your valuable stuff in the car especially electronic devices like laptops, harddisks and etc. I am one of the victims. I hope they get their instant retribution. 😬

    This is not the largest nor the oldest temple in this region as some have commented. But is the very few large temples in Clang Valley.
