This temple stands in the busy street market of São Domingos. Built in 1750, and restored several times afterwards, it is dedicated to the God of War and Riches, Kwan Tai, who sits on the altar flanked by images of his son and his standard bearer. There are two side altars and a large area which the keeper and his family use as a living room. The table for offerings has an excellent carved front. The festival of Kwan Tai is celebrated on the 13th day of the fifth moon (in May) and th 24th day of the sixth moon (in June).
