The Temple Guy(.com) is dead! Long live the Temple Guy(.org)!
Well, not dead, exactly, but... Read more about it!

Tian Hou, Chiwan:

Please note: Other than the main image, virtually everything in this temple has been moved or replaced in the less-than-one-year's time that I have been going there.  The plan above and the photos below were confirmed on a February 19, 2005, visit, though some of the photos were shot before that date.

All significant items above are picture here, except the Eighteen Arhats, who have their own page.

About the photos: All photos on this page are copyright 2005 by James Baquet
