  • Thien Hau Temple is one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever had the pleasure to enter. I would highly recommend a visit to the temple for anyone staying in or visiting China Town LA  more »
  • Beautiful temple. Loved the statues, the lanterns, everything. I did not take pictures of the inside, I felt it would be disrespectful. It is a must see!!
  • This Taoist temple located in Chinatown is very interesting to visit. We felt like we had left the US and been transported to China upon entering. Apparently it is possible to have a tour if you make arrangements in advance, but we just wandered through. I would like to go back so that I better understand what I saw. Without a tour and with little understanding of Taoism it is a sea of elaborate red and gold decor, statues, offerings of fruits and other foods, and burning incense. Nevertheless, it was still very interesting and very sensory to spend time there.
