Its natural setting and beautifully ornamented buildings make it a scenic attraction as an important religious center. Worshippers pray for good fortune through offerings, divine guidance, and fortune-telling. Feng shui enthusiasts may notice structures representing the five geomantic elements: the Bronze Pavilion (metal), the Archives Hall (wood); the Yuk Yik Fountain (water); the Yue Heung Shrine (fire); and the Earth Wall (earth). Other areas include the Three Saints Hall, the Confucian Hall, and the colorful Good Wish Garden.
