“Discovered” this beautiful Chinese temple while driving past Sipitang.
Journey to the West statues
Getting there: If you are coming from Kota Kinabalu, just past Sipitang town, near the tamu, there is a signboard on the right side of the road that says “Kuil Hock Teck Kong”. The temple is located on top of a hill. Getting there is easy.
Ratings: ** Beautiful temple with brilliant colours that are perfect for photography. Interesting statues. Long way to drive just to visit a temple, but do visit if you are in Sipitang.
Lost Ratings: ** There is one caretaker looking after the temple. No one else is there. Deserted except during festivals.
