As a Buddhist temple funded by local Chinese, although it is not magnificent enough or even a little shabby, the Putuo Temple has far-reaching significance.
In a foreign country, when I see temples, I always have an indescribable sense of intimacy, and there is a huge statue of Guanyin Bodhisattva, which is very spectacular.
Putuo Temple in Kota Kinabalu was invested and built by a Chinese. There are many Chinese communities in Malaysia. Many of the rich are ranked by Chinese. There are many delicious things, and there are many monks in Putuo Temple.
Compared with the floating mosque built by the Malay government, Putuo Temple was built by the Chinese with funds raised. I deeply feel that it is not easy for the Chinese to stay outside! Another thing to add is that almost all the toilets in the scenic spots are charged, and they are not charged here. It is the Chinese people who are kind!
Then I went to a Buddhist temple here, Putuo Temple. The Guanyin Niangniang here is different from the other places. The Guanyin Niangniang in other places is normally placed, and the bottle here is downward. , The opposite position is a cemetery, which means that all sentient beings are Purdue.

There are gates, parking lot, front hall, nave, apse, side hall, restaurant, dormitory building, small garden, kindergarten (yes, the kindergarten is fine, the Chinese kindergarten attached to the temple), Guanyin statue and other buildings, visit time About 2H. It is similar to domestic temples. What is more distinctive is that the temple has many murals. Basically, the outer walls are painted with large murals, which are very beautiful. If you are not in a hurry, it is very pleasant to have a fast meal in the temple, read Buddhist books and drink tea in the pavilion in the afternoon. The temple has free Buddhist books, newspapers and periodicals for free borrowing, and there is a self-service coin vending machine. The toilet is on the right side of the stairs on the right side of the apse (next to the kindergarten).
It was built at the southern end of 1980, not too long ago. The scale is huge, and it is said that the main building materials are all originally from mainland China. Most overseas Chinese are followers of Han Buddhism. Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva lives mostly in his heart. Putuo Temple's name is the dojo of Guanyin Bodhisattva.
