Guan Yin Temple

Like the typical Chinese traditional architecture, the corners of roof are bent up. For special buildings, such as palace & temple, the roof top is usually decorated with statues, such as dragon, phoenix & mascots. In South East Asia, the most commonly seen Chinese architecture building is temple. This is one of the few popular Chinese Buddhist temples in Ipoh, Guan Yin Temple off Kuala Kangsar Road. At the center of roof top, two dragons are guarding the Guan Yin statue, which is a typical design.
