For a "taste of LOCAL CULTURE" this shrine recognises the original Chinese migrant population!! It is in the "Historic District"-- which is an interesting place as well! This is yet another example of Thailand's historical "welcoming spirit" towards immigrants!!

This shrine is still in the process of being beautifully refurbished. Located in Songkhla's Chinatown it is of course, a Chinese Temple, filled with beauty and colour. Entry is free and it is well worth a visit
