This small Chinese temple unknown by tourists is surprising. The two elements that should make you want to pay it a visit are its dragon and tiger statues inside which there is a corridor with pretty colorful paintings. They are part of the tour faithful do when they come here to pray and pay homage to the deities. The temple is commonly called Kuan Im Chokchai but you will also find it under the name of Kuan Yin Bodhisattava's Hall. It was founded by Abbess Bhiksuni Shi Kuang Seng who received her ordination at Mount Pu Tuo in China in 1991.

By entering inside the dragon, after removing your shoes as it is the rule in temples, you will arrive to a staircase with at your right a staricase leading up to the small pavilion with the statue of Kuan Im, Goddess of Mercy and by going to the left, you will enter the corridor going through the body of the tiger statue and finally emerge by its jaw. To the right of the dragon, there are 2 stairs leading to a platform with a Buddha and facing the dragon, the ordination hall.
