Kong Chow Temple is San Francisco's oldest, where thousands of Chinese worshipped for almost a century. Its interior is sumptuous with gilded carving golden scroll senameled urns, bronze vases embroideries, inlaid teak tables, and statues. The altar, seated the Shrines and spacious for several worship-parties simultaneously is of unusual Oriental beauty. Gow Bui and Chim are symbolic signs for conducting the Deities. The Temple's entrance leading through a large court and fountain is, indeed, very enchanting.
