Thean Hou Temple
The striking architecture of the Thean Hou Temple, dedicated to the Chinese sea goddess Mazu, sits atop a hillside on the southern outskirts of the city. At six tiers, it’s one of the largest Chinese Buddhist temples in South East Asia. It’s a sea of vibrant red lanterns making it one of the most attractive too.
If you’re looking for a happy and prosperous marriage, this is the place to pray for it, according to the many Buddhist locals who regularly attend to worship at this active temple. Visit early (from 8am) to avoid the crowds and while there’s no strict dress code, we recommend modesty as a sign of respect.Read More
