Arrive to the sounds of devotees chanting the name of the goddess Kuan Yin. The shrine is found on the mountainous road leading up to the village of Chaloklum in a Chinese temple that would warrant more than just one visit. It is in the main building of the temple where the shrine is stored and therefore is the centre of all activity that occurs here. Worshippers can be seen offering fruits and vegetables to the goddess while others remain in moments of silent prayer. At night the lights of the temple can be seen all across Chaloklum Bay and thus provides a guiding light to the local fishermen who seek its comfort out at sea. Additionally outside the main building is a smiling statuette of the Buddha which looks out to the ocean.
