Guan Di Temple

Founded in 1886, this atmospheric temple is dedicated to Guandi, a historical Chinese general known as the Taoist god of war, but more commonly worshipped as the patron of righteous brotherhoods: he is in fact patron of both police forces and triad gangs.

The temple’s high ceilings, red walls, tiled eaves and pointy gable ends give it a distinctive look that’s great for photos.
