|Murphy and Loc outside of Thien Hau Temple|
The serenity of the Thien Hau Buddhist Temple (built in 1760) is located just blocks from the madness of the Chinese Market. It was a pleasant change of pace to wander peacefully through the Temple and its grounds, smelling the incense, and enjoying the quiet!

|Murphy lights a coil of incense for the|
health of a friend. It was hung from the
ceiling with many other smoking coils.
