Although all the temples are similar, each one has its particular beauty and it is worth spending a while if someone explains you the visit. A great attraction, with a history of more than 300 years where you can see the importance of the heritage of Chinese nation. This in particular is not so spectacular but it is not overcrowded, so you can really enjoy it laugh
