Guan Yin Temple @ Sibu

I spotted a beautiful temple behind the Sacred Heart Cathedral and decided to check it up. I never realize there is a temple there.

The barricades beside the temple are beautifully crafted and the colours used blend really well to it.

2 Lion statues seem to guard the entrance to the temple.

The Ying and Yang symbol at the main stairway

I am impressed with the work of arts and decorations around the temple.

The interior of the temple is rather small.

A place to put the incense stick in front of the temple

This temple is named Guan Yin temple and is obviously a dedication for the Goddess of Mercy

This temple is new. I also spot it by accident when I check out the cathedral. There are still construction materials outside the compound. Hence, I deduce it was recently completed. Even the paint look fresh on it,

Such a beautiful temple, so very different from what we have over here in Sweden! I'm always so amazed over everything abroad.
