Kuan Ying Tong Temple @ Bintulu

Kuan Yin Tong temple in Bintulu is the only Chinese temple in the town and is located at Sultan Iskandar Road

The temple and its surrounding are beautiful. The paint job on the temple is so intact that I thought this is a new temple.

There is a garden with koi pond just next to the temple


Adjacent to temple is another beautiful garden and a Chinese Zodiac animals in a circular arrangement. All of these animals are facing the giant marble ball at the centre of a pool. I was amazed with the quality craftmanship.

The pig statue caught my attention as there are a few cute piglets surrounding the pig statue

Been only 2 km from Bintulu town, this temple is definitely worth a visit. I enjoy the sight of the temple and taking my time relaxing at its beautiful garden.

It looks like an artistically designed temple.
