On a usual Saturday late afternoon, Hui Hui and Me decided to paid a visit to Ching San (that what we usually call it). The distance is about 38 km from Kuching, hence its only take about 30 minutes drive.
I parked my car in front of one of the two restaurant there at the foot hill. Its wasn't much people on that particular day. so we walks up the steps to the temple and take pictures along the way.
