"Spiritual Heart of Chinatown"

Kanteibyo, or the Kuan Ti Miao Temple, has been the spiritual heart of Chinatown ever since it was built in 1887. Kuan Ti Miao Temple is dedicated to Kuan Yu, a mythical hero from the legendary "Tale of Three Kingdoms." During the Song Dynasty Kuan Yu was officially recognized as the "God of War". The Kuan Ti Miao Temple burned down three times: the 1923 Earthquake; WW2 bombings; and a freak fire in 1987. Somewhat miraculously the three statues inside survived each time. Rebuilt in the late 1980s, the Kuan Ti Miao Temple is the starting point for New Year parades, and is the temple where local Chinese pray for prosperity and the health and happiness of their families.
