Two in one
The complex consists of two temples, the main temple is situated about 270 metres about sea level and is open to the public for worship. The other temple is Phu Sian Temple which is not open to the public.
What to explore
If the entrance to the temple looks familiar, it’s because it was designed to look like The Great Wall of China. Inside the temple, you will find a library, souvenir shop, a chapel and a wishing well. Furthermore, there’s a balcony too from where you can view the city.
Visitors can observe the devotees going ahead with their rituals of making wishes and climbing 181 steps. To make wishes, the individual will have to wash their hands, enter the temple bear foot and push 2 blocks of wood. If the blocks fall face up, you can make your wish, but if it doesn’t, it means that the time for the wish to be granted has not yet come.
