Sometimes we have plans to seek out the coolest sights in Houston, and sometimes we make a few wrong turns and stumble right into them.
For the Teo Chew Temple, we had stopped by the Six Ping Bakery in Chinatown and were looking for the entrance to Arthur Storey Park. We made a wrong turn on Turtlewood Court and were looking for a driveway for making a uturn… and pulled right into the parking lot of the temple.
It was a weekday morning and we were the only guests at Teo Chew Temple. It was still decorated for the Lunar New Year and one man was working to tidy up the the space. He invited us in, told us we could tour and take pictures.
I had read that the temple runs on donations, so we gave the the gentleman some money and said “thank you”.
Also so you know, the temple also has public restrooms.
Take a look at these pictures and stop by when you are in Chinatown!
